Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard: Drinking Alcohol on Instagram?!

Like millions of Americans, you might have shared a bottle of wine with your significant other on Valentine’s Day.

But because you’re not a Duggar (we assume) your massive social media following probably didn’t freak the eff out over it.

That’s a photo of Derick Dillard that Jill Duggar posted on Instagram.

“My hubby is the best,” she wrote.

“He totally turned our house into a steakhouse, serving me a wonderful Valentine’s Day dinner last night! #besthubby @derickdillard I love you babe!”

Nothing scandalous about that, right?

Well, normally there wouldn’t be, but the Duggars have strict rules about … well, everything, and one of the many, many things that’s strictly forbidden to them is alcohol.

Fans love catching Jim Bob and Michelle’s offspring breaking the insanely strict code of conduct they were raised under, so it’s not surprising that they zeroed right in on that bottle in Derick’s hand.

Is it really booze or some sort of sparkling cider, like you’d drink at a middle school dance?

It’s tough to say, but the Duggars aren’t talking, which has led many fans to conclude that Jill and Derick have been caught sampling satan’s bubbly.

Whatever the case, Jill and Derick really can’t catch a break these days.

Ever since Derick got fired by TLC for harassing a fellow network star on Twitter, Duggar obsessives have been watching their every move.

You might think it would be a good time for the Dillards to simply keep a low profile, but unfortunately, they don’t really have that option.

Throughout thair adult lives, Jill and Derick have supported themselves with monetary donations from Duggar fans.

Now that they no longer have those sweet reality TV dollars pouring in, those donations are their only means of supporting themselves.

As such, Jill and Derick have no choice but to continue engaging with fans. 

Even if it means being accused of totally normal activities that her parents have decided are worth a one-way ticket to hell.

Lamar Odom: Caught Drinking on New Year’s Eve. Here’s the Sad Proof.

New year.

Same Lamar Odom.

This is what fans of the former basketball star and ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian now fear.

TMZ has shared a couple photos of Odom from New Year’s Eve, an occasion which he celebrated in the Dominican Republic.

The images depict Odom hanging out in a local hot spot called Club 59, chilling in a sweater and chatting with a woman who witnesses say he kissed at midnight.

That isn’t the issue, of course.

Odom is certainly allowed to smooch and flirt; he’s a single man likely anxious to mingle.

But the photos also capture Odom with a beer in his hand.

You can check them out HERE.

According to TMZ sources, the green bottle Odom has in hand is called Presidente, a Spanish beer featured in breweries around the Dominican Republic.

He was also seen throwing back some tequila shots.

At this point, the star’s substance abuse problem has been well-documented.

It caused him to be suspended by the NBA a few years ago and it’s the main reason his marriage to Khloe fell apart.

In October of 2015, Odom fell unconscious while spending time at a brothel in Nevada, barely clinging to life in a coma for several days.

You would think such an incident would serve as a turning point, but it’s not that easy to overcome one’s addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.

It has appear on multiple instances since then that Lamar recognized his demons and was prepared to get clean and sober… he’s simply been unable to successfully do so.

In early November, for example, Odom collapsed at a night club in Los Angeles.

A spokesperson for the ex-reality star claimed Lamar was simply dehydrated and tired, but almost no one out there bought that excuse.

Lamar is spiraling again. He’s out of control,” a source subsequently told People Magazine, adding about eight weeks ago:

“He was better this spring, but things got worse over the summer and everyone is worried things are going to get even worse and they’re scared for him.”

Moreover, it’s not hard to understand why Odom might be driven to drink these days.

While he has not spoken out directly on Khloe’s pregnancy, someone close to the situation say Lamar is crushed by the news.

He and Khloe talked openly about having children back during their relationship and it’s easy to see this exciting news not exactly being so exciting for Odom.

It’s easy to see it having the opposite effect, unfortunately.

As always, we wish the very best to Odom, who nearly everyone says is a caring, sensitive, outstanding individual.

He simply has an addiction.

We pray he overcomes it someday.


Matt Roloff Christmas Photo Sparks New Drinking Concerns

Matt Roloff can't exactly catch a break these days.

The Little People, Big World star appears to get dragged online for almost any reason, even when he shares a seemingly innocent photo of himself.

Case in point?

The picture below of Roloff in a funny hat at the supermarket.

After taking a glance at it, many followers wondered whether an intervention was needed for Matt's alleged drinking problem.

We wish we were kidding, but scroll down…

1. "Getting in the full Christmas spirit."

Matt roloff loves christmas
That’s what Matt wrote as a caption to this photo. Pretty simple, right? Pretty funny, no? Those would be our only reactions to the image.

2. However…

Matt roloff drinks
… not everyone saw it our way. They took one quick look at Roloff in a festive mood and their mind went someplace else; specifically, to what caused him to be in this sort of mood.

3. Case in Point:

Case in point
This one person clearly thought alcohol played a role in Matt’s mood, and he or she seemed pretty judgmental about it in writing these two words.

4. Did He Fall Off the Wagon?

Did he fall off the wagon
This is what some are wondering. No, Matt is not an alcoholic. Yes, however, he has one unfortunate mark on his record that have made some think he has a drinking problem.

5. The Arrest

The arrest
In July of 2007, Roloff was arrested for drunk driving. Cops pulled him over after they spotted his vehicle swerving between lanes. Authorities reported Roloff allegedly failed the field sobriety test. He was taken to the Washington County jail where he was cited for a DUI.

6. This Was His Second Offense

In 2003, Matt was convicted of drunken driving in Multnomah County, court records prove. The charge was dismissed a year later after he successfully completed an alcohol diversion program.

Scott Disick & Sofia Richie: Drinking, Doing Coke in NYC?

It’s been three months since we first learned that Scott Disick is dating Sofia Richie, and the situation only seems to get more creepy with time.

While the idea of Scott using Sofia as a pawn to help him get revenge on his ex was undeniably skeevy, somehow, the realization that Disick might be taking this relationship seriously is somehow even worse.

Scott is 34 and Sofia is 19, but it’s not even the age difference that’s disturbing here.

No, it’s the fact Disick’s been on a non-stop bender for the past year, shirking his responsibilities as a father of three in order to focus on boozing and bedding young starlets.

Not exactly an ideal situation for a teenager to step into.

Those who know the couple best say that while Scott may have been using Sofia to make Kourtney Kardashian jealous at first, these days, his feelings for the young model are genuine.

Unfortunately, it seems that just as Scott has fallen for Sofia, she’s fallen into his lifestyle of late nights and hard partying.

According to Radar Online, Scott and Sofia were spotted turning up until 3 am at the Common Cround bar in Manhattan earlier this week.

Witnesses tell the site that Disick was knocking back shots of what appeared to be whiskey and taking suspicious trips to the men’s room.

“I saw him have around four of them and he took several bathroom trips with his friends and came out wiping his nose,” a snitch at the scene said.

“Scott and Sofia kissed a couple times, but mainly just sort of sat around and watched the crowd party, it was sort of strange.”

The source says he never saw Sofia do any drinking, but he believes she was under the influence, as “her eyes were glazed over” and “she seemed out of it.”

There’s no official word yet on how Sofia’s sister, Nicole Richie, or her father, Lionel Richie, feel about her latest relationship, but not surprisingly, it’s been rumored that they’re less than thrilled.

We’re guessing reports of the teenager partying until 3 am with an sucidally alcoholic reality star probably won’t improve their assessment of the situation.

As for Scott, his family and friends are reportedly still concerened that Disick is actively drinking himself to death.

Here’s hoping the Lord can eventually find the help he needs–and that he’ll in the meantime, he’ll stop taking naïve teenagers down with him.


Jessica Simpson Has a Drinking “Problem,” Source Alleges

Remember when Jessica Simpson appeared on Ellen this past May?

And she rambled about her marriage and her hobbies and even her sexual past with women and everyone thought it was oh so very funny?

But what if it were very serious? What if it were indicative of a substance abuse problem for which Simpson needs professional help?

This is the assertion being made by an In Touch Weekly insider, who tells the tabloid that, as straightforwardly as possible, that the star “has a problem” with alcohol.

The magazine cites an incident that took place on September 19 when Simpson could barely stand up straight upon leaving the Los Angeles restaurant Craig’s.

Photographers captured the 37-year old losing her balance on the sidewalk that evening, literally held up by husband Eric Johnson.

We’ve all been here, of course. We’ve all thrown back one too many drinks on occasion and wondered what the heck we were thinking as we reached for the Advil the following morning.

But this wasn’t a one-time, harmless occurrence, according to anonymous friend of the singer’s.

“It’s been occurring on a frequent basis lately,” this friend tells In Touch of  Simpson, alleging that Jessica mixes booze with anti-anxiety pills and adding:

“The combination [of alcohol and medication] makes her loopy and disoriented.

This dangerous habit has supposedly grown worse in the wake of her father’s cancer diagnosis late last year.

Johnson is concerned about his wife’s behavior and possible addiction and has reportedly tried to discuss the issue with Simpson.

But she hasn’t been receptive to his critiques and/or advice.

“They’ll fight about Jessica’s drinking for a few days and then apologize to each other until it happens again,” this same magazine source explains.

At one point, Johnson allegedly even tried to stage an intervention for Simpson.

Alas, it never materialized.

“Eric just deals with it now,” the insider says, elaborating as follows:

“Of course he’s embarrassed, but there isn’t much he can do. Jessica can be really stubborn and if she doesn’t want to do something, no one can make her.”

This isn’t the first time Simpson’s supposed drinking problem has been raised as an issue.

Two years ago, Johnson urged his wife to check into a rehab facility in order to sober up.

Following an appearance on HSN in which Simpson came across as totally wasted, Johnson put his foot down, sources claimed in September of 2015.

“He is worried sick that Jess’ conduct is going to start affecting their two children and that their oldest is starting to realize there’s something wrong,” we wrote back then.

This is the appearance to which we’re referring:

Said another tabloid insider shortly after this embarrassing incident:

“She can’t be in denial any longer about the toll that her problems have taken on her marriage, her children, and her money.”

Fast forward two years and…well… she apparently can be.

Of course, accusing someone of a drinking problem is a pretty big deal.

We can’t say we have first-hand knowledge of Simpson’s situation here.

All we can say is that she has two kids and IF there really is an issue that has to be dealt with, we sincerely hope she realizes what’s most important as a mother and seeks the assistance she needs.

We’re rooting for you, Jess.


Ben Affleck: Caught Drinking at the Emmys?!

As you may have heard, the 2017 Emmy Awards were Sunday night, and as the paltry ratings indicate, no one really cared.

Mainstream news outlets seemed more concerned with the random Sean Spicer cameo than with who took home the night’s major prizes.

And within celebrity gossip circles, the big buzz was all about Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus bringing Ben Affleck as her date.

Ben and Lindsay didn’t walk the red carpet together, but they sat side-by-side at their first industry event as a couple.

Witnesses say Ben stood and cheered when Lindsay took the stage to accept an award alongside Lorne Michaels and several of her SNL colleagues.

It’s unclear exactly how long Ben and Lindsay have been together, but sources close to the couple say they’re moving quickly – and having an awful lot of fun.

Unfortunately, it seems their good times frequently entail heavy boozing, which might be fine, were it not for the fact that Ben just completed rehab in March.

Affleck has been spotted drinking with Lindsay several times since they started dating, and it seems the two of them kept the party going at an Emmy after-party Sunday night.

“He ordered water at the bar but a server brought him over the alcoholic drink once he sat down at the table,” an eyewitness tells In Touch exclusively.

“He drank all of it,” the onlooker adds.

A source close to Affleck doesn’t deny that the actor has been enjoying a drink now and then, but 

“Ben continues to focus on a balanced lifestyle,” says the insider.

Affleck having a couple adult beverages on a special occasion may not seem like a big deal, and perhaps it’s not.

But considering he’s very fresh from rehab and juggling a career, a divorce, and being a dad to three kids, it’s not hard to see why fans may be concerned.

After receiving word of her ex’s new relationship, Jennifer Garner reportedly commented that Ben’s drinking is “Lindsay’s problem now.”

Obviously, it’s not really Shookus’ responsibility to make sure that Ben stays off the sauce.

He’s a grown man, after all.

But sources close to Garner say she’d hoped that Lindsay wouldn’t prove to be enabler, and we’re guessing she’s less than thrilled with the way things are playing out.

None us can know the extent of Ben’s addiction, but considering he’s checked into rehab at least twice now, it makes sense that the mother of his children would prefer that he remain sober.
