Roloffs Enter the Guinness Book of World Records, Can Now Trash Talk the Kardashians

Take this, Kardashians.

Go ahead and suck on it, Duggars.

Not even close, Wilkinson-Basketts!

The Roloffs now have bragging rights that no other group of relatives on reality television can match.

We mean this both literally and officially.

On Monday, Matt Roloff surprised Instagram followers by sharing two very sweet photos on his official social media account, both of which were accompanied by a caption that explained an impressive family achievement.

We’ll go ahead and let Matt explain on his loved ones’ behalf:

“The Roloff family’s very exciting news to share with you all… We have – along with all of YOU – made history,” he wrote to open this caption, adding in more detail:

“We’ve been awarded by the Guinness Book of World Records for the most family-focused reality television shows in the history of television!!

“We couldn’t have done it without all of you.

“If you have been a fan for a while, help us share the exciting news by sharing this photo on social media and mentioning how long you have been watching #LPBW.

“We appreciate you guys! @mattroloff @rolofffarms #littlepeoplebigworld #theroloffs #therolofffamily #worldrecord.”

Wow, huh?

We had no idea this even was a record one could achieve.

But Little People, Big World has been on the air since 2005.

As you can maybe see in the photo above, the series hit the 298-episode mark in January, which was apparently the figure needed to propel the Roloffs to the top.

For comparison’s sake:

Keeping Up with the Kardashians has aired 214 episodes, while 19 and Counting may have threatened this figure if TLC had not canceled the series in the wake of that Josh Duggar molestation scandal.

At the time of its axing, that family-based program had aired 227 installments.

This news comes at an interesting time for the show and for the family as a whole.

There’s been chatter among fans regarding the series’ future, based on Matt’s bombshell news that he’s moving to Arizona.

It’s unclear at the moment if this will have any impact on TLC renewing Little People, Big World for a new season.

The past few episodes of the show have also focused more than ever on tension between Matt and Amy, both of whom seem sick of working so closely together and definitely sick of living so close to each other.

This tension has been heightened of late because both Matt and Amy are involved in serious romantic relationships.

What might happen to the series if Matt marries Caryn Chandler and/or Amy marries Chris Marek?

Again, we don’t know.

But as you can see by the comparisons we made above, Little People, Big World is not in any danger of losing this record any time soon.

Its flown past the 300-episode milestone at this point and, even if it ends after this season, no other family-oriented reality show appears to be close.

So… congratulations to the Roloffs.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching your adventures over the years and we hope there are many more to come in the years ahead.


The Flash Season 4 Episode 4 Episode 15 Recap: Enter Flashtime

It was time to take back the streets of Central City. 

When The Flash Season 4 Episode 15 kicked off, Barry rushed to Iris and admitted he could not save her this time. 

Yes, we were totally wondering if we had missed the whole previous episode, but thankfully we were taken eight minutes into the past to get a nice dose of clarity. 

Cisco and Iris were training Barry how to outrun DeVoe’s breaches, and this resulted in the happy couple taking a break to chat about their relationship. 

That’s when Barry agreed they should go on a date because, well, they’ve barely had a second to spend together as a married couple. 

That’s when Harry arrived and told them that Devoe had been planning to steal the powers form the bus metahumans for longer than they initially thought. 

Jesse Quick appeared, and she wasted no time in grilling her dad about the way he’s dealing with her mother’s death. 

However, they were interrupted by the revelation that a fight with guns had broken out. Just when it seemed like our team was winning the battle, a nuke was revealed. 

Barry and Jesse conferred about what they could do to save everyone, and Jesse went to get Jay Garrick from Earth-3 because they both thought he would know something. 

Cisco tried to send the nuke into another Earth, but not one with any life form. But Cisco could not handle the heat inside Flashtime and made his way back to the normal world. 

Jay arrived on the scene and immediately felt that the mission could lead to the end of the Speed Force. That would mean no more speedsters. 

He offered up some news that the nuke could be cooled down, and that could save everyone from a certain death. 

Killer Frost offered to help out, but her powers were useless inside the Flashtime, so she was sent back to the regular world. 

Iris told Barry about Caitlin using the quark sphere and that Barry should try to get that to drop the bomb. Barry entered the Force once again, and her plan worked. 

Iris saved the day!

The big closing moment found the mystery girl in Jitters spilling coffees on Caitlin and Harry. The youngster said she was waiting to meet someone, but it was later revealed Caitlin and Harry were who she was talking about. 

Let me present a theory: That girl is totally Barry and Iris’ child from another Earth. It’s uncanny, and we’re sure all will be revealed soon enough. 

What did you think of the episode?

Sound off below!

The Flash continues Tuesdays on The CW!


Duggar Courtship News: Who Will Enter a Relationship Next?

We're only five days into the new year, but 2018 has already seen a Duggar baby announcement and a whole slew of courship speculation.

We now know that Jinger Duggar is expecting her first child, but that's certainly not the only way in which reality TV's largest family will be expanding in the months to come.

Joy-Anna Duggar is also expecting, as is Joseph Duggar's new wife, Kendra Caldwell.

And of course, several single Duggars are set to embark on courtship journeys of their own in the months to come.

Here's a rundown of who might be next to leave the nest:

1. Jana Duggar

The perennial fan favorite. Fans have been hoping for a courtship announcement from Jana for years now. And thanks to her increasingly close “friendship” with Caleb Williams, it seems 2018 will finally be her year.

2. John David Duggar

This is another one that wouldn’t come as much of a surprise. In fact, it’s widely believed that John David is already involved in a secret courtship with a woman from Texas. No word on why he might be keeping things on the down-low.

3. The Pressure Is On!

Both Jana and John David are no doubt feeling the pressure to announce relationships. The twins will turn 28 this month, and they’re the oldest unmarried Duggars by a considerable margin.

4. Josiah Duggar

Many fans believe this is the year that Josiah Duggar will once again try his hand at courtship. Josiah is the only member of his family to enter a relationship that did not result in marriage, having pursued an ill-fated romance with Marjorie Jackson in 2016.

5. A Social Media Loophole

Some fans believe Josiah is the next to go a-courtin’, as in many respects, he’s more modern and mature than many of his siblings. Duggars are typically forbidden to have social media accounts until they enter a formal courtship. However, Josiah has maintained an Instagram page despite the fact that his relationship with Jackson has come to en end, leading many to believe that he’s using it to keep in touch with potential mates.

6. Jedediah Duggar

Smart money is on Jedediah Duggar announcing a courship in 2018. As many fans have pointed out, he was likely already involved in a romantic relationship that went awry.

Mark Salling Enter Guilty Plea for Possessing Child Porn

Between Corey Monteith’s tragic death and Naya Rivera getting charged with domestic battery, things aren’t going so well for some members of the Glee cast.

But the worst of all has to be where Mark Salling’s life has taken him. 

And he has now entered his guilty plea for possession of child porn.

Back in October, Mark Salling finally agreed to a guilty plea for his child porn charges.

According to the terms of his plea agreement, he’ll serve from 4 to 7 years in prison, followed by 20 years of supervised release.

Obviously, he’ll have to register as a sex offender and enroll in a counseling program.

Considering that prosecutors had found about 50,000 images of prepubescent children on his personal devices and reportedly discovered a video of a 5-year-old girl performing a sex act, he’s getting off lightly.

He could have faced 20 or more years in prison.

Considering that the little girls whose photos and videos he had in his possession will never get to have normal or healthy childhoods, many feel that Salling should rot behind bars.

The legal process works much more slowly than it does on television, folks.

Mark Salling agreed to the plea deal in October, shortly after the former Glee actor reportedly attempted suicide.

He’s entering the plea now, in December.

And he won’t be sentenced until March 7th.

It would be unorthodox for him to receive a sentence beyond the plea agreement that he made with prosecutors, since usually sentencing following a plea deal is mostly a formality.

But there’s always a chance of a dramatic upset if a judge determines that a plea is, for example, too lenient. Or perhaps if new evidence of further wrongdoings is unearthed.

That’s still very unlikely.

4 to 7 years is a long time to have your entire life on hold, and there are some people who would argue that child pornography is a “victimless crime.”

We have to believe that the children who were victimized on camera would disagree.

Any sympathy we might have for someone whose brain has a few crossed wires that cause a blurring of their nurture instincts and their sexual attraction goes away the moment that they participate in the victimization of actual children.

(The same way that we stop feeling sorry for someone whose instincts for food and sex are blurred the moment that they start, you know, eating people)

If it helps quash any lingering vestiges of sympathy for Salling, he allegedly responded to news of Ed Westwick raping his girlfriend by breaking up with her instead of, you know, confronting him, comforting her, or suggesting filing a police report.

Anyway, Mark Salling will spend time in prison.

We hope, however, that the time that he spends in mandatory counseling after his release will help him to combat his urges.

Given that he had tens of thousands of these horrifying images, we’d say that he developed a wildly unhealthy compulsion.

But since he’s dated adult women, we have to assume that he could one day lead a healthy sex life.

Assuming, of course, that any woman would have him.


Maci Bookout & Taylor McKinney Enter Marriage Counseling: Are They Headed For Divorce?!

It’s only been eight months since Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney got married, but it seems the Teen Mom stars’ wedded bliss has already given way to the complexities of life in a blended family under the constant glare of the media magnifying glass.

On last night’s episode of Teen Mom: OG, we learned that Maci and Taylor have entered marriage counseling.

While that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re having serious relationship troubles, many fans have pointed out that there’s ample reason to believe that Maci and Taylor’s home life is less than ideal.

For starters, there’s the revelation that it’s not unusual for Maci and Taylor to engage in drunken fights off camera.

“Obviously, having three kids is catching up to us,” Maci told her friend Keelie in a scene from last night’s installment.

“Eighty-five percent of the time, we’re good to go. The rest of the 15 percent, it’s hell. It’s like all of our stress and emotion and everything … we take it out on each other.”

Bookout added:

“When the cameras leave, we’ll drink and freak out. It’s always like, literally, the smallest things.”

Maci didn’t go into specifics about what she meant by “freak out,” but the comment certainly didn’t paint a pretty picture.

Fortunately, she and Taylor followed Keelie’s advice and sought counseling.

Based on the comments she made to her therapist, it sounds like Maci allows the day-to-day pressures of her hectic life to build up , and then vents her frustrations after her tongue’s been loosened by a few Bud Lights:

“All of the little things build up because neither of us ever communicate them,” Bookout told the couple’s counselor.

“Then all of a sudden, we’re mad and we don’t even know why we’re mad.”

She added:

“To be honest with you, he could go the rest of our lives and never tell me ‘thank you’ or ‘you’re awesome.’ Just grab my ass every now and then and give me a kiss.”

We’re sure the situation isn’t helped by recent issues involving Maci’s first baby daddy.

Fans learned last week that Ryan Edwards has checked into rehab for unspecified substance abuse issues.

Sources close to Maci say she’d been frequently breaking down in tears out of concern for her ex.

So Ryan, Maci, and Taylor are all far from out of the woods, but the important thing is that they’re seeking the right kind of help, which considerably improves their chances of working through these issues.

And for that, we commend them.
