Adam Silver on Jimmy Butler Drama with Timberwolves, ‘They Gotta Work It Out’

NBA Commish Adam Silver has obviously been following the drama between Jimmy Butler and the Minnesota Timberwolves … and tells TMZ Sports, “They gotta work it out.” Butler requested a trade during the off-season — and hasn’t gotten it — and…


Jersey Shore Family Vacation Recap: Baby, Mamas and A LOT of Drama

For the cast members on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, what happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas.

It gets broadcast to millions of viewers each week!

Indeed, Ronnie, Pauly, Sitchy and company returned with TWO brand new episodes on Thursday night, kicking off Season 2 in grand, intense and adorable fashion.

The bulk of these installments centered on Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and his occasionally-violent girlfriend Jen Harley welcoming their daughter into the world.

But Ronnie was actually in London for the blessed event, flying back to Sin City as soon as he learned Harley was in labor.

Pauly D was already there, however, and was actually the first member of the crew to meet precious little Ariana.

Shortly after this life-transforming development, however, Jen and Ronnie got into the ultimate social media fight (see slideshow below).

This prompted Vinny and Mike to fly to Nevada for a guys’ night out in order to figure out was the heck happening with Ronnie.

The new father acted as if everything was totally cool and said he and Harley were together and on solid terms and, oh, also: he didn’t want to to go a strip club.


Elsewhere, JWoww was also in an intriguing place in life.

Her two-year-old son was not yet talking and was therefore attending therapy three times a week. She was trying to handle it as best she could.

For Mother’s Day husband Roger Mathews asked all of her friends to send in a 30-second video so he could create something to cheer her up.

When only The Situation participated, though, Jenni wanted to call out Snooki, upset that her BFF didn’t play a role in this gift.

However, the confrontation got put on the backburner when Deena Cortese announced she was pregnant while they were all at lunch. How exciting!

Snooki also noted that she had been hanging out a bit with Angelina Pivarnick, despite her having recently labeled JWOWW a “whore” on social media.

She even said she had invited the controversial ex-cast member to Vegas.

On the second half of the premiere, meanwhile, the drama truly picked up.

It actually got very serious and potentially dangerous.

After receiving a text from Harley that made him angry, Ronnie got wasted and nearly attacked someone at a pool party, at least reminding long-time viewers that he hasn’t changed much.

Back at the hotel, the muscle-bound tough guy actually broke down in tears and at last opened up to the roommates about what was going on.

Since they had arrived in Vegas, he had been saying that everything was good with Harley — but that was just to keep her happy.

In reality, Ronnie explained that he didn’t want to talk badly about the mother of his child (which is news to us, considering some of what he’s said) and then he cried.

And he cried and he cried.

When he broke down, his friend told him they needed to know what was happening so they could try to be of some assistance.

So Ronnie finally told them everything. It all came out, folks.

“I’m scared of losing my f-cking daughter,” he said, continuing:

“Jen, she’s irrational, she’s capable of taking the baby and going away. Everything I say is on a thread with her…

“I’m gonna f-cking get crucified for this. I’ve been going through hell.”

Later, in the confessional, he added:

“When we fight, she has kept the baby from me for five days, six days. It’s like, I won’t even know where my daughter is.”

JWOWW was sympathic, but she also told Ronnie that if he’s concerned about not seeing his daughter, he shouldn’t be posting mean things about her mom on Instagram.

That’s a fair point, isn’t it?

“Every move that I make, I’m scared that my daughter’s gonna be gone,” he yelled.

But Jenni had a solution:

“Leave her and fight for your daughter, and then go get help. Go to the court, go get a lawyer,” she told him, bringing up how her son couldn’t speak and that he should be grateful he has a healthy kid.

When Ronnie replied he has “nothing,” Jenni really let him have it:

You chose that life. You f-cked a crazy bitch. You got a crazy bitch pregnant!

Ah, good times.

Who out there didn’t miss all of these people?!?

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Rekap: Konfessions of Some Drama Queens

The klaws kame out on the Season 15 premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, as Kim and Khloe ganged up on sister Kourtney like never before.

These sisters klashed over the family’s annual Khristmas kalendar, with Kim peeved that Kourtney wasn’t making herself readily available and Kourtney irritated that Kim didn’t komprehend she has three kids for whom to kare.

So… did this feud get resolved on Sunday night’s brand new installment?

We started with Kim suggesting to her siblings that they attend some counseling in order to work through a few rather clear issues.

“We all communicate really weird and we just don’t ever express what’s really bothering us and we all walk on eggshells around each other,” Kim explained.

Kourtney objected, but this storyline was in the script, so Kim insisted:

“Well we’re all going to therapy together, so it’s happening. Because we all need to communicate with a mediator and we don’t have that mediator.”

Enter that mediator!

The sisters awkwardly sat around at Khloe’s house and tried to put everything on the table for a change, as opposed to shoving it under a rug.

Said Kourtney to the professional at one point:

“I’m the one who invented mean fighting … I’m just not wanting to fight like that anymore. … I don’t want to spend my time around people that are mean and putting me down.”

From there, revealed to the mediator that Kourtney has been insecure, adding:

“But it’s also an insecurity I’ve never seen from her before.”

(NOTE: This was all filmed many months ago, long before Kourtney split from Younes Bendjmina.)

Kim, meanwhile, was taken aback by Kourtney’s claim.

She wasn’t buying the story that Kourtney was somehow the relaxed sister; or that she had been making any effort of late to let things go.

Quite the opposite, Kim argued:

“You’re preaching that you just want this Zen life and that you’re so positive and you don’t want to fight, but then most of the time you’re arguing about stuff that’s like, ‘Again?'”

Seemingly not eventrying to be cruel, just to explain where she was coming from, Kim labeled Kourtney as “always anxious and insecure.”

Said Khloe in this emotional session:

“Kourtney and I have a really special bond, I haven’t felt that from her in the past couple months and that’s been frustrating for me.

“I do feel a major disconnect between her and I specifically, and I would like to understand what that is.”

Kourtney sat and listed and waited patiently.

But she admitted that she didn’t think her sisters were “genuinely” happy for her.

“It’s like everything is…the show’s more important, work’s more important,” an emotional Kourtney confessed. “Maybe traveling isn’t a priority to you, but it is to me.”

Kourtney has the biggest family of all three siblings and admittedly works the least, but what’s wrong with that?

Why be “resentful” of her lifestyle, as Kourtney accused Kim and Khloe of being toward her?

“We honestly want Kourtney to take her trips, we want Kourtney to live her life and do whatever she wants to do,” Kim later claimed in a confessional, adding:

“We just want her to be held accountable and be responsible that when you take a job and you’re getting paid to do something that you honor that, because all of us do.”

In the end, Kourtney simply said that work wasn’t a priority for her like it is for her sisters and she didn’t understand why they focused on such petty issues.

Conversely, Khloe and Kim said that Kourtney simply wasn’t understanding their side of the issue.

Little was resolved.

“Whatever Kourtney is going through, it’s just so much deeper than me and Khloe and until Kourtney is ready to talk about it we can’t push her or try to be aggressive,” Kim later concluded camera.

“She’s going through a lot of life changes right now and we just have to let her go through that.”

Sure, either that or Kourtney just wants to hang out with her children.

To relive this drama, and to see what sort of prank Khloe pulled off with Scott Disick, use the video below to watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online.

Miley Cyrus-Liam Hemsworth Breakup Rumors Swirl Amidst Instagram Drama

If you love Miley Cyrus to the point that you follow all the social media fan pages devoted to all the latest gossip on the singer’s personal life, then you may have caught wind of a startling rumor over the weekend.

Several such outlets breathlessly exclaimed that Miley and Liam Hemsworth have broken up yet again.

And this time, they claimed, their source was not some bogus insider, but Miley herself, who seemed to have broken the news on her Instagram page.

If you read beyond the headlines, however, you may have found that while Cyrus has engaged in some very unusual activity on social media recently, it would require quite a leap in logic to conclude that she’s trying to send a low-key message about her love life.

Yes, Miley deleted every photo of Liam Hemsworth from her Instagram page.

But she also deleted all other content from her account and changed her profile pic to a plain black background.

Miley also blacked out her Twitter avatar, but she did not delete her tweets.

Obviously, it’s not hard to see why some fans would take this is a sign that something is amiss in Miley’s personal life.

But in all likelihood, the move has more to do with her professional life.

It appears that Miley is participating in a recent and somewhat annoying trend in self-promotion.

You see, lately, celebs have been drumming up interest in upcoming projects not by teasing their new work with tweets and Instagram pics, but by deleting (or archiving) all of the content on their pages.

Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik have both taken that approach to drumming up interest in upcoming releases.

Back in April, rumors of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds getting divorced began to circulate non-stop as a result of Blake’s decision to remove all content from her Instagram page and unfollow her husband.

It was later revealed that Blake did all this to promote the release of her upcoming film A Simple Favor.

Miley Cyrus: Blank IG

(Side note: that movie still hasn’t come out yet, so we’re thinking Blake jumped the gun a bit in terms of promotional stunts.)

Not surprisingly, Miley fans are losing their minds trying to figure out what’s next for the eccentric songstress:

“The fact that she’s [deleting] all her 2013-14 posts already and is still deleting is HUGE. We are getting a proper era? Building hype?” one Cyrus enthusiast tweeted.

Yes, the world of mainstream pop music stans is a fascinating one.

Only in 2018 could a 25-year-old artist with only 5 non-Disney studio albums to her name be credited as the architect of multiple musical “eras.”

But hey, you’ve gotta hand it to her — if Miley’s goal was to drum up interest in her new music, mission accomplished!


Demi Lovato: Fires More Staff, Shudders Website Amidst Relapse Drama

It’s been three weeks since the world learned that Demi Lovato relapsed after six years of sobriety, and it seems the recovery process has been a long and difficult one for the troubled pop songstress.

To her credit, it wasn’t the tabloids that publicized her latest struggles with substance abuse but Demi herself.

In June, she released the song “Sober,” which detailed her fall from the wagon with heartbreaking and surprisingly personal lyrics.

Unfortunately, the release of the song did not signal the start of Demi’s long road back to sobriety, as many had hoped.

Instead, those who know her best say Lovato is still drinking and has no immediate plans to get clean.

“Demi has gone off the rails,” a source tells Radar Online.

Equally troubling is the fact that the singer has reportedly been severing ties with those who wish to help her.

Demi fired her manager earlier this week, and it seems she’s ended her relationship with several other staffers in the days that followed.

“She’s completely dropped her family members, friends and everyone in the sober community, including all of the people at CAST [Demi’s former recovery program],” the source claimed.

“And now she is cutting off her staff who have worked with her forever.”

As Radar reports, Lovato also shut down her website earlier this week.

The site is now back up and running, but the hiatus left many with the impression that Demi is badly in need of some time away from the spotlight.

The fact that Lovato is cashing in on her relapse by actively promoting “Sober” on her social media pages has led some to label her a hypocrite:

“She is making money off her relapse,” says the insider.

“But she is a walking contradiction, because she is does not have a game plan to get clean right now.”

Friends and family already staged an informal intervention, but sadly, it seems their concerns fell on deaf ears.

“[They] suggested to her that she should get some help and go to rehab,” the source claims.

Clearly, Demi didn’t heed that advice.

On social media, Lovato has been the subject of a massive outpouring of concern, but unlike in years past, she seems to have little interest in communicating directly with fans.

Here’s hoping she’s able to find the help she needs before it’s too late.


Ronnie Ortiz-Magro: FIRED From Jersey Shore Over Jen Harley Drama?!

If you watched the inaugural season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation or even just paid passing attention to any of the cast member’s social media pages, then you know the drama between Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley has made Ron’s relationship with Sammi Giancola look downright stable by comparison.

In fact, the whole situation has been more Jerry Springer than Jersey Shore.

On the show, the couple mostly kept things civil, despite the well-publicized incident in which Ronnie got handsy with a French Fry.

In real life, Ronnie and Jen welcomed a daughter, and it briefly looked as though they had every intention of trying to make things work.

But then Ortiz-Magro’s famously volatile (and allegedly steroid-fueled) temper became an issue, and the new dad launched a virulent and incessant tirade of irate tweets against Harley.

In other words, Rahn refused to Stahp.

He called Harley a “c-m dumpster” and publicly accused her of cheating.

She responded by calling him a deadbeat dad and accusing him of engaging in his own infidelities.

The situation came to a head last week when Jen allegedly dragged Ronnie alongside her car and was arrested on assault charges.

The cast is currently filming a second season of JSFV, and needless to say, Ronnie’s situation has complicated the production process.

Shooting began in Vegas, the city that both Ronnie and Jen currently call home.

For obvious reasons, this turned out to be a mistake.

Ronnie got in a fight on the second day of filming, forcing production to shut down for the day.

The operation has now relocated to the crew’s original stomping ground of Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

But according to a new report from The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Ronnie did not make the trip with the rest of the cast.

The situation has led to rumors that Ronnie was fired from the show due to his tumultuous relationship with Harley.

Sources have confirmed, however, that that’s not the case, and Ortiz-Magro is simply taking time to recover from injuries he suffered during the car dragging incident.

“His family flew there to be with him,” one insider told US Weekly.

“He’s recovering from his injuries. He was hurt pretty badly and needs the time to heal.”

Police determined that Ronnie was blameless in the incident, as he was attempting to get out of Harley’s car when she began to drive away.

“He asked [her to] pull over and let him out of the car,” the source told Us.

“She stopped, and Ronnie tried getting out and got caught in his seatbelt. Jen started driving away, dragging Ronnie…Ronnie’s face was bloodied and bruised, and he’s got a nasty road rash.”

Sounds like we’re in for another season of serious Ronnie drama, but fear not — there will be plenty of comic relief as well.

The Dirty Hamster herself, Angelina Pivarnick, was reportedly spotted touring Seaside with the rest of the guidos.

She’s not exactly a fan favorite, but we may need Angelina’s absurdity to help keep things light in future episodes.

Shahs of Sunset: Trailer Teases Drama, Loss, and a Wedding!

Shahs of Sunset is returning for its seventh dramatic season, and we have the trailer.

We already knew that Mercedes Javid married David Feight, but this video teases plenty of wedding drama. Also, other drama.

And some sadness. And a couple of fights, because hey, why not?

Shahs of sunset trailer 01

Before we get into MJ's fun misadventures (and the sadness), let's cover the roster.

First, the returning stars:

Reza Farahan, Mercedes "MJ" Javid, Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi and Mike Shouhed are all back.

And we'll be seeing more of Destiney Rose, who is still a newbie on the series.

Then there's the new cast member, Nema Vand, who describes himself as a "white-washed Persian." Hey, so long as he's the one saying it, right?

Remember when we openly questioned if Asa Soltan Rahmati was done with the series?

She's sticking around … but only in a recurring capacity. It happens.

Shahs of sunset trailer 02

The bride-to-be is very excited about her wedding to her long-time lover, but she is the first to acknowledge that she had once ruled it out entirely.

"Remember me?" MJ asks the camera. "The one who said never?"

In case you've forgotten, the trailer cuts to footage of MJ saying exactly what she thinks of marriage — a stressful and expensive prelude to divorce.

Clearly, she has now changed her tune.

"Guess what, mother f–kers?" She asks. Don't worry — it's rhetorical. "I’m getting married!"

She sure is!

While we knew that she tied the knot already, this trailer shows us that the wedding didn't exactly go smoothly.

Shahs of sunset trailer 03

Meanwhile, Mike Shouhed has a heart-to-heart with his mother.

Sometimes, when others reach life milestones, you realize that your life hasn't led where you had imagined that it would.

He laments that he is not married with children already, as that is where he believes that he should be at this point in his life.

(We're guessing that he's really regretting cheating right about now)

His mother assures him that he'll find the right person in time.

Oh, speaking of major life decisions, Reza Aslan and his husband, Adam Neely, seem to have hit a bump in their relationship.

The trailer hints that these two are at odds over whether to have children — with Reza being against it.

But … we need to circle back to MJ.

The trailer certainly does.

Mercedes javid releases her fathers ashes

MJ's lowest point in this trailer is dealing with her father's death.

Unfortunately, that sorrow becomes almost comical — almost — as her attempt to scatter his ashes over the water goes awry.

The wind blows some of her father's own remains back into her face, which is unpleasant on many levels. All levels, really.

Reza doesn't take it well, either.

For the record, it is our understanding that Federal law prohibits any spreading of human remains along any coastlines unless you are three miles or more out at sea.

So … that's another layer to this very uncomfortable scene.

Shahs of sunset trailer 04

MJ has more to do, by the way.

It looks like we'll be seeing at least one fight between MJ and GG.

And then we get just a tease of some sort of mini-catastrophe at her wedding, which is every bride's nightmare.

The trailer is punctuated perfectly by Reza's "what happened?"

Shahs of Sunset is a gift, folks.

Jersey Shore Halts Filming In Vegas Due to Ronnie Magro-Jen Harley Drama

Oh, that Rahn. Will he ever stahp?

That’s likely the question on the mind of Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s castmates today, as the Jersey Shore crew was forced to stop filming ahead of schedule due to ongoing drama between Ronnie and his baby mama, Jen Harley.

Until yesterday, the cast was in Las Vegas filming a second season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation.

The title isn’t terribly apt in Magro’s case, as Vegas is his home turf these days.

So it was a bad choice of locale for reasons that go beyond the irony of filming a show with “Shore” in the title in the middle of a landlocked state.

You see, if you’ve been watching the current season of JSFV, you know that Ron and Jen’s relationship isn’t the greatest.

During his time in South Beach, Ronnie cheated on Jen with a French woman who was unimaginatively dubbed “French Fry.”

But that was only the beginning of their problems.

Shortly after that episode aired, Ronnie accused Jen of cheating on him, in a wild Instagram rant in which he also called her a “c-m dumpster.”

In the weeks since, Harley and Ortiz-Magro broke up and got back together several times, so it should’ve come as no surprise to Shore producers when their relationship drama dominated the first few days of filming in Vegas.

Maybe that was the plan. Maybe the plan backfired.

Whatever the case, the plan was scrapped when — to use the parlance of Shore’s current season — Ron spiraled and quickly spun out of control.

Last week, Magro got in a fight with another guest at a Vegas hotel.

Just days later, MTV pulled the plug on filming in Vegas and sent the cast back to the Garden State.

“They cannot wait to get the hell out of the desert and be away from everything surrounding Ronnie and Jen,” a source close to production tells Radar Online.

The situation had apparently gotten so bad that the cast was considering holding an intervention in response to Ron’s self-destructive behavior.

“They are all adults now, and they cannot watch Ronnie destroy his life anymore,” says the insider.

Hey, the guy’s been fun to watch this season, but he’s a 32-year-old dad now. 

Maybe he should cool it on the Ron-Ron juice for a bit.


KUWTK Season 15: New Babies! New Drama! New Footage!

Things have really changed.

So says Kim Kardashian in the first trailer for new episodes of her family's beloved/totally hated reality show.

And this may be the understatement of the century.

Since we last saw Kim and her siblings on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kylie Jenner has given birth to a baby.

Khloe Kardashian has also given birth to a baby.

And Tristan Thompson has been revealed as a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad cheater.

So, yes, as Kim notes above: Things have really changed. A lot.

But one thing has remained the same on Keeping Up with the Kardashians: The drama and the bond between sisters.

The latter, however, will be tested a bit on Season 15.

"Have you looked on the Internet? Do you see what people say about me compared to you?" a salty Kourtney asks Kendall Jenner at one point in the following trailer.

In promoting upcoming installments, meanwhile, Kim linked to this video and wrote:

"Probably our most rude argumentative fighting season we've ever had and I still hold my ground and am not backing down LOL."

Responded Khloe to this Tweet, in a Tweet of her own:

"You've turned into a f-cking savage."

Up until this point on the show, no one had even acknowledged that Kylie was expecting her first baby.

So fans are clearly anxious to see whether Stormi Webster or baby daddy Travis Scott will make appearances on Season 15.

Elsewhere, Kourtney will be dealing with all the drama surrounding Scott Disick and Sofia Richie; while eyes will remain keenly focused on poor Khloe and her future as a mother/girfriend of a cheater.

Will she stick by Thompson's side?

Will new episodes give us an idea of what she is leaning toward doing?

"Sooner or later, you guys are gonna realize how much you all mean to one another," Kris Jenner notes in this preview, which promises that this season will take viewers "behind the headlines."

And, as always, there have been plenty of those when it comes to the Kardashians.

Ready to keep up with them once again?

Get your first look at Season 15 below!
