Ami Brown: Did She Ever Really Have Cancer?

Sometimes, a small but vocal minority of viewers and “fans” can’t even take good news without trying to turn it into something that it isn’t.

And that seems to be what’s happening with Alaskan Bush People as they respond to updates on Ami Brown’s cancer battle.

The minute that she doesn’t look like she’s dying, some people have the audacity to question whether Ami ever really had cancer to begin with.

The Alaskan Bush People star and family matriarch Ami Brown has been battling lung cancer. Real, actual lung cancer.

Throughout this fight, even Ami’s own children haven’t been sure if their mom is going to make it.

Obviously, as reality stars with a long and successful career, the Brown family could afford the best kind of care. They even moved to a Beverly Hills mansion so that Ami could be near a hospital and could be comfortable while recovering.

Fans wanted Ami to recover, which is why a photo of Billy Brown ignited controversy when fans noticed that he was still proudly displaying his carton of cigarettes while his wife battles lung cancer.

With the Alaskan Bush People Christmas Special, fans and viewers learned some very good news: that Ami Brown was finished with treatment and her doctor declared that she was doing much better.

The non-fan page Alaskan Bush People Exposed shared this post:

“Ami Update: I’ve been seeing in a lot of other groups and articles that she is 100% cancer free.”

That’s not true. But there is wonderful news.

“I would like to set the record straight. Ami is officially in remission and for now chemo is over.”

That’s a huge — and pleasant — surprise for many fans who weren’t expecting good news.

Alaskan Bush People Exposed continues, writing:

“That doesn’t mean she lied about having cancer or faked having cancer.”

Obviously. It’s not that no one ever lies about this kind of thing, folks. But … clearly, Ami was not.

So, what’s Ami’s status?

“All it simply means is that she is in remission and will be monitored by her doctors very closely.”

Remission is not the same as being magically cured by a Christmas miracle, folks.

“Like most people dealing with cancer it is something that Ami will have to deal with for the rest of her life and to suggest anything else is irresponsible and utter nonsense.”

Ami will have to be vigilant for cancer to once again manifest for the rest of her life. Her chances of having cancer are 40% higher than that of someone who doesn’t have cancer.

Sometimes, people who’ve “beaten” cancer find that just a few months or years later, cancer returns. Sometimes, it’s worse the second time around.

As we already told you, Alaskan Bush People Exposed shared that Ami had a “setback” following the filming of the Christmas special:

“Shortly after Thanksgiving she suffered a brief setback and was very ill. She is doing better now and back on the mend.”

That may have simply been an illness, as the ravages of both chemo and cancer can leave someone susceptible to everyday ailments.

Of course, some people still have questions. One comment replying to Alaskan Bush People Exposed’s clarifying post reads:

“You have to go 5 years to be officially ‘cancer free’. As of right now she is in remission.”

This commenter finds all of this suspicious.

“I just don’t see how someone that is stage 4 was able to be cancer free so fast. Remember stage 4 means the cancer metastasized to other parts of the body.”

And then he writes:

“The 5 year survival rate is less then 10%. I’m glad she is doing well but it doesn’t add up.”

One, perhaps Ami Brown was lucky and beat the odds.

Two, perhaps Amy Brown is a reality star who can afford the best care.

Three, and we hate to mention this, but his “concerns” about the 5 years survival rate may be addressed if Ami Brown doesn’t make it to 2023.

Beating cancer doesn’t mean that she’ll live to be 80. Or 70. And maybe not even 60.

(Ami will turn 55 in August of this year)


Megan Fox Shares Rare Photo of Daughter, Internet Dubs Her “Most Attractive Baby Ever”

There’s little to no debate over the looks of Megan Fox.

If she isn’t the best looking female on the planet, she’s probably in your top five or 10.

Even in a beanie, the actress is simply sizzling.

But while nearly everyone’s accepts and acknowledges the beauty of Megan Fox, a new discussion has broken out over someone very close to this gorgeous star.

Specifically, her daughter.

Fox and husband Brian Austin Green have three kids together, all of them boys:

Five-year old Noah, three-year old Bodhi and Journey, who is almost a year-and-a-half old.

Back in August, Fox actually gave us a look at all three kids, sharing a rare family snapshot that got the Internet all abuzz.

But now the former Transformers star has given folks something to discuss other than her penchant for sometimes dressing Bodhi up like a girl.

And that something is this:

Has she given birth to the most attractive tiny human in the history of mankind?

This question is being bantered about on social media because Fox surprised Instagram followers this week upon posting the picture above.

It features her and Journey and it includes the simple caption “clone wars.”

The toddler is clearly very cute. No one can deny this.

And no one is trying to deny this, as evidenced by such user comments as the following:

foxy reaction

But at least one person has come out and made an even stronger statement.

“I think this is the most attractive baby I’ve ever seen,” says the person below, which is really a pretty bold sentiment if you think about it.

The most attractive baby EVER?!?

attractive kid

The challenge here is attempting to come up with Journey’s competition for such an honor.

We mean, all babies are really very cute. And this is especially the case when they’re born to celebrities because most celebrities are very good looking.

Because Fox is considered one of the hottest women on the planet, it does stand to reason that she would give birth to other very pretty or handsome little people.

However, this logic doesn’t always apply.

Few people would label Lauryn Shannon as “sexy” or “beautiful” or “above average” and yet, LOOK, she recently welcomed a precious kid into the world.

So it’s hard to say, you know?

Are Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green parents to the cutest child EVER?!?

It’s very possible that fans also reacted positively to Fox’s post because she made a joke/reference to Star Wars.

And people do love Star Wars.

Still, we don’t want to take credit away from Journey, who is so gosh darn cute that most people are able to look right past his silly name and just focus on his face.

We’ve collected photos below of other celebrities and their offspring to help answer this newly pressing question.

Princess Charlotte Starts Preschool, Poses for Cutest Photos EVER

The world may be anxiously awaiting the birth of Kate Middleton’s third child, but we’d like to take a moment and pay tribute to her second child.

Not because there’s anything wrong with Princess Charlotte, of course.

But because there’s so much right with the two-year old.

Namely, she is REALLY cute!

On Monday morning, the toddler started her run at Willcocks Nursery School, which is situated next door to London’s Royal Albert Hall and which is very close to her family’s Kensington Palace home.

In recognition of the life milestone, the Royal Family unveiled two new portraits of Charlotte, who turns three years old on May 2.

And, in a fun little twist, both were snapped by Middleton herself!

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning,” said a Palace spokesman along with the snapshots, adding:

“The images were taken by The Duchess shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of nursery at the Willcocks Nursery School.”

Seriously, Kate, it’s not enough for you to be beautiful, fashionable, and, by all accounts, charitable and kind?

You must be an ace photographer as well?!?

Charlotte posed for the very cute photos on the steps outside her Kensington Palace residence, holding on to a railing in the picture immediately above.

The tiny Royal donned a $ 150 burgundy Razorbil wool coat by Amaia and paired  itwith stone-colored tights, red shoes and a matching red bow.

She carried a pink backpack by Cath Kidston.

Saying of Charlotte’s famous parents, an insider told People Magazine:

“They chose [this school] because they thought it would be an ideal first step for Charlotte’s education and they were impressed by the team who work there.”

Makes sense. That’s basically why any parents would choose any school.

Charlotte’s older brother, Prince George, started nursery school at the same age as Charlotte, back in in January of 2016.

(He’s now four years old. How crazy is that?!?)

George attended a Montessori school just a short drive from the family’s country house, Anmer Hall.

He began his educational life on a part-time basis, however, while Charlotte will be attending full time. She’s clearly serious about school already.

This is all very exciting, of course. And we wish Charlotte the best.

But the real exciting news for her parents is that they are about to become parents again!

She’s due in April and may be having twins, which, if true, would more or less cause the Internet to explode.

And right after Kate gives birth, Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle.

Indeed, it’s a very busy time for members of the Royal Family.

Khloe Kardashian: I’m Happier Than I’ve Ever Been — Sorry, Lamar!

If you’ve seen or heard anything from Khloe Kardashian lately, you’ve probably noticed one thing …

Well, a couple of things. There’s no denying that baby bump these days!

But besides the pregnancy — though we’re sure the pregnancy is a big part of it — she’s really just seemed so happy and peaceful, hasn’t she?

Like after so many ups and downs, she’s finally settled in a place where she wants to be in life.

It’s so nice to see.

And if you weren’t near tears over the beautiful turnaround of Khloe Kardashian’s life already, well, let her break it all down for you in this lengthy but super touching Instagram post she made today!

For her photo, she shared an older photo of herself along with a much more recent one — her “revenge body”:

Khloe Kardashian Before and After

In the caption, she wrote “Sometimes it’s hard for me to post these transformation posts only because I can’t imagine my life being this unhealthy again.”

To clarify, she added that “Never would I ever consider myself fat, but I would consider myself unhealthy mentally/physically and not knowing my true value. Mind, body and soul.”

Aww, KoKo.

“For me,” she wrote, “my transformation started from within. I needed to heal myself from the inside out.”

“Once I started putting myself first, everything started falling into place. My life transformed a few years ago when I made the decision to stop existing and start living.”

A few years ago, of course, is when she split from Lamar Odom and began focusing hard on her fitness.

She’s said many times that she began going to the gym as a way to deal with everything that was going on with Lamar — his downward spiral began while they were still together.

It must have been tough for her to file for divorce and take care of herself when so many people were convinced that they were soulmates, destined to be together forever.

But, as she explained, “I decided when I was ready regardless of what anybody else was saying about me. Regardless of the pressures. I had to do this on my terms or I knew it wouldn’t last.”

“It’s ok to take the control back,” she advised her followers. “Choose your life. Don’t let anybody else decide for you!”

“We are no victims to life but we can become victims and prisoners to the people that we choose to surround ourselves with if we allow them to break us and consume us.”

Anyone else loving this motivational speaker side of Khloe? Because we are kind of living for it.

“Never be afraid to put yourself first!” she preached. “Never choose comfort over your own well-being! Never forget that fate loves the fearless!”

“Today’s wisdom was yesterday’s pain. Tomorrow’s happiness is today’s bravery! I am so proud of myself for being stronger than I’ve ever been — mind body and soul.”

And she should be — we still don’t know all that went on with her marriage to Lamar, but just considering what we do know, it’s amazing that she’s been able to pull herself up like this.

We all saw how deeply she loved him, and we also saw how deeply he betrayed her. She definitely should be proud of her strength.

Khloe also wrote that she’s “even prouder of myself that I’ve been able to maintain a healthy lifestyle for so many years. I broke that cycle and I’m happier than I have ever been!”

“You can do this!! Start from within and nothing can stop you,” she finished. “Elevate yourself — mind body and soul.”

It’s no wonder why so many people refer to her as the best Kardashian, huh?


Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard: Will They Ever Be Allowed to Adopt?!

In recent weeks, Derick Dillard has made waves and angered both his famous in-laws and his former bosses.

As a result, Derick was fired by TLC after harshly criticizing transgender teen Jazz Jennings on Twitter.

The reaction against his unprovoked bullying campaign has been swift and harsh, but now it looks as though Derick mght not be through suffering the consequences of his foolish remarks.

As fans are no doubt aware, Derick and Jill Duggar have talked about adoption on several occasions.

Obviously, the couple has kept busy making biological children in recent years, but they seem to believe that the adoption option remains open to them should they ever decide to take advantage of it.

However, should they ever initiate the process, they may learn that that’s simply not the case.

As In Touch Weekly points out Jill and Derick may have hurt their chances for adoption with their recent conduct.

Adoption agencies–particularly international agencies, of the sort in which Jill and Derick have expressed interest–often factor in the social media activity and political and religious views of prospective parents when making their decisions.

Jill has not publicly espoused Derick’s transphobic views, but she has stated that she fully supports her husband in all matters.

That loyalty could work to her detriment if she and Derick ever decide to adopt.

Of course, thus far, several Duggars have spoken at length about adoption, but none has actually initiated the process.

Fans have expressed annoyance with those circumstances, arguing that it’s beginning to look as though the famiy simply enjoys the adulation they receive from fans when they talk about adoption, but would never actually take an adopted child into their home.

Jill and some of her sisters have also discussed the idea of becoming foster parents, but that seems even less likely.

Agencies that match foster children with families often have strict rules with regard to disciplinary practices and the sort of beliefs that foster parents are permitted to instill in their charges.

And it seems unlikely that the Duggars would be willing to comply with by which all foster families must comply.

“Because of the trauma these children have endured, the agency does not allow corporal punishment,” reads a page on the Foster Family Home Inquiry website.

“Foster parents will need to recognize the religious beliefs of the foster child and support them in exercising their religious beliefs.”

The Duggars would likely be unwilling to accept a situation in which they were unable to use corporal punishment (the family’s fondness for “blanket training” has been well-documented) or impart their own unorthodox beliefs to children living under their foor.

Ironically, all the talk of adoption and fostering that was supposed to highlight the Duggars’ benevolent side is bringing all their most controversial ideas and practices to the forefront.

New Book, Donald Trump told Hope Hicks She was ‘Greatest Piece of Tail’ Lewandowski Ever Got

The new book ‘Fire and Fury’ is loaded with explosive allegations involving Donald Trump and company, including one in which candidate Trump allegedly told his current Communications Director Hope Hicks that she was the “greatest piece of tail”…


Jim Bob Duggar: Richer Than Ever, Still Feuding With Ben Seewald

How’s your 2018 going so far?

From a financial standpoint, you’re probably not starting the year as strongly as Jim Bob Duggar, but at the same time you’re not responsible for dozens of increasingly scandal-prone children and in-laws, so you’ve got that going for you … which is nice.

Yes, despite Jim Bob’s “high-class” hoarding and near financial collapse, it seems the Duggar patriarch is once again living high on the hog.

A new report from The Richest has Jim Bob’s net worth at roughly $ 3.6 million.

That’s not as much cash as it may sound like, due to the aforementioned wealth of mouths to feed.

But it’s also much better than Jim Bob’s been doing in recent years.

As recently as early 2017, JB was said to be on the brink of bankruptcy thanks to a string of financial miscalculations and the declining popularity of his family’s once-beloved reality show.

We recently learned exactly how much the Duggars are paid for Counting On, and it’s not quite as much as you might expect.

Sources say the family pulls in $ 25,000 per episode.

It’s a lot of money for just a few days’ work, but it’d also divided roughly 47 bajillion ways.

Of course, that doesn’t mean Jim Bob is struggling. Far from it, in fact.

These days, he’s back to gloating about his wealth (just as Jesus would do) at pricey financial “seminars” hosted by his friend Jim Sammons.

JB spoke of his fondness for the debt-free life in a recent seminar, telling the assembled crowd:

“After just seeing the first session, the truths from God’s Word being taught through Mr. Sammons began to convict me of my need to ‘owe no man anything but love.’”

Obviously, most of Jim Bob’s kids and their spouses are inspired by his ability to earn, but there’s at least one member of the family who thinks the Duggar patriarch has lost his way.

We’re talking, of course, about Jessa Duggar’s husband, Ben Seewald.

Jim Bob and Ben have clashed in the past over differences in their religious views, and it seems they’re once again butting heads.

Ben reportedly doesn’t think his father-in-law’s devotion to amassing a Scrooge McDuck-like swimming pool full of gold coins is particularly godly, and it seems he’s not shy about making his feelings known.

Jim Bob needn’t worry, of course, as he has the full support of the rest of his family, particularly Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, who’s currently unemployed, but has taken to asking fans for money online, thus keeping the greed alive for a new generation.
