Like most of her Teen Mom 2 co-stars, Kailyn Lowry enjoys interacting with fans and has no problem sharing details of her personal life on social media.
But she'd like to make it perfectly clear that just because she's a public figure, that doesn't mean everyone is free to say whatever they'd like about her family.
Sure, Kail's kids are frequently featured on TV, but when discussing celebs in a public forum, the proper etiquette is to observe Mafia war rules and leave the kids out of it.
Apparently, some of Lowry's fans need a lesson in manners — and it seems she's more than happy to give them exactly that …

Farrah Abraham has a lot of critics, but not very many defenders.
The reasons for this are myriad, of course, as Farrah continues to find ways to f-ck up not only her own existence, but that of her 8-year-old daughter.
Sure, it's Farrah's life, and if she wants to star in live-streaming online sex shows instead of a popular reality series, that's her decision to make.
She would probably find at least some fan support for such choices, were it not for the fact that she's terrible to everyone in her life, especially her mother and daughter.
But now, Farrah has found an unlikely defender in Leah Messer's second husband, Jeremy Calvert.
As a result, another star of the franchise is attempting to get Calvert to see the light, and Farrah is proving once again that she doesn't need to star on a Teen Mom series in order to stir up major drama with the shows' cast. Details:

Gossip Girl alum Penn Badgley married Domino Kirke early last year, and now he’s starring in a new series.
Unfortunately, while doing press for this new show, he put his foot in his mouth in the worst way — appearing to make light of people who have been molested.
Penn has come forward and apologized.
Penn Badgley, who played Daniel Humphrey on the legendary CW series, Gossip Girl, is set to star in a new Lifetime series, You.
In this series, he will play a stalker. He was quick to connect that such a predatory fictional character relates to real life predators.
In an interview with The Daily Beast, Penn Badgley says that he hopes that his show will help people have “necessary conversations” in the wake of #MeToo.
“I think it’s significant that a show like this is coming out now,” Penn says.
Clearly, he is not equating his show with #MeToo — just drawing an accurate connection.
This is where he begins to put his foot into his mouth, and it’s all about one word choice.
“I think as an actor you can become an object of desire,” Penn says. “Which is something women are already accustomed to more or less around the world.”
He is totally right about that, and it’s good that he acknowledges that this is already the case for countless women.
Then Penn says: “I mean, I don’t want to sound sensationalist, but I’ve literally been molested — just in the literal sense of the word — by many people in the moment. Because that’s what they do.”
Penn also gave a shoutout to Terry Crews as one of the men who came forward with a #MeToo story, but we’ll get to that in a second.
Penn very clearly means one of the literal definitions of molested — meaning to be bothered. He is speaking of people intruding into his life because of his fame.
Folks, especially when you’re discussing #MeToo but really at any time, use whichever word is most accurate and clear for the message that you are trying to convey.
Say that your privacy was violated or your personhood was disrespected or that you were objectified or simply that you were bothered.
Don’t say “molested” when you mean one of those things. Some people, actors included, have actually been molested — groped and worse.
Penn Badgley did not mean to make light of people who have actually been molested, and issued a clarification to Us Weekly.
“The point of my comment was not to confess a personal trauma,” Penn explains.
Penn continues: “I was speaking about the way emotional and physical boundaries are violated for someone in the public eye, who is seen as an object of desire.”
“Depending on so many factors, it can range from conscious abuse to something very unconscious,” he tries to clarify.
“And that is the point I was making, cautiously,” he says. “In the context of a conversation about fanaticism and cultural norms which support manipulative or abusive behavior.”
“These are the same norms which support predatory men, but not exclusively predatory men,” Penn concludes. “They affect, and infect, us all.”
That very cerebral clarification was great, but he could have avoided this entire situation by just making a better choice with his diction the first time around.
But we get it. And Penn is a good person, clearly. As we mentioned, his original interview included a shout-out to Terry Crews’ sexual assault and to the backlash that Crews is currently facing from powerful people in the entertainment industry.
Penn points out that men who have been groped or assaulted face challenges that are different than those that women face, because of societal standards.
“You’re led as a man, particularly, that when it happens you should feel great about it,” Penn says of men who have been sexually assaulted.
To be clear, he is not saying that men have it worse — simply that society treats men differently than it treats women over this issue.
In Crews’ case, people responded that he should have used violence against the predator.
That is a shameful piece of victim-blaming that ignores the consequences that Crews would have faced.
Many other men are simply told that they should be grateful.
“Particularly,” Penn notes. “When it comes from someone who’s feasibly an object of your desire as well.”
In other words, there are men who have been groped or even raped and, because the perpetrator was a woman or even a beautiful woman, they are told that they should feel flattered.
Tori Spelling has had problems these past few years.
In fact, she’s had just about every kind of problem you can think of — and she appears to be hell-bent on making all of them worse.
Tori has gone bankrupt and she seems intent on spending her way into an even deeper hole.
Tori has nearly divorced Dean McDermott but has opted instead to tough it out, despite allegations of infidelity, pyramid schemes, and generally being a colossal d-bag.
At one point, Tori even fell down at a Benihana and burned her hand on a grill.
Like we said, think of a problem that’s not “not being born to a life of unimaginable privilege” and Tori has experienced it.
So perhaps it should come as no surprise that the mother of five appears to be hitting the bottle a bit these days.
Or so her fans think.
According to Radar Online, Tori uploaded an Instagram story over the weekend in which she appeared to be heavily intoxicated — in the presence of her kids.
It seems Spelling was hanging out at the home of her friend, Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles star Josh Flagg, when she posted the slurry video to her page
“Josh has chosen to watch one of my movies, Troop Beverly Hills, so I’m going to walk in the kitchen and see what’s up!” she told the camera at one point.
“Are you really doing a fridge tour?” Tori’s confused 11-year-old son Liam asked.
And it seems the former reality star’s followers were just as perplexed by her behavior.
“Are you drunk?” asked one commenter.
“Yo, you been drinking girl?” another remarked.
“Are you hammered?” a third commented.
Tori didn’t reply, but a second Instagram clip may have answered those questions.
In the video, Tori could be seen screaming while rolling around with her kids on Flagg’s bed.
The stories were quickly deleted, but it seems fans have yet to forget Tori’s tipsy upload.
She posted a new story today, and many of the comments had to do with her boozy weekend.
“Not drunk today?” a fan commented on Tori’s latest IG story.
That’s the internet in 2018 for you.
You can delete whatever you want, but that doesn’t mean it’s forgotten.
Earlier this week, MTV finally confirmed the big news:
It wasn’t the first time we heard the idea of Cheyenne, a star on other MTV reality shows like Are You the One? and The Challenge, becoming a cast member on the show.
Far from it, actually.
The first reports about Cheyenne came out back in June, and word is that she began filming then too, along with the father of her daughter, ex-boyfriend Cory Wharton.
But despite all of that, there was no official word on her casting until now.
So now Cheyenne will join Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell, and fellow newcomer Bristol Palin to make the core group of Teen Mom OG.
And in case you haven’t heard, the show’s fans are very, very displeased.
When the official Teen Mom Facebook page posted the news, the comment section was full of dismay.
“Why do they keep adding random people?” one person asked. “These girls were never on the show to start with and shouldn’t be now.”
This is a good point because the “OG” in the title of the show stands for “Original Girls,” because Maci, Amber, Catelynn, and Farrah Abraham, the original cast, have been around since the beginning of the show.
They were on the very first season of 16 and Pregnant, and despite the significant pay raises they’ve received over the years, they really did struggle in the early days — and MTV cameras documented it all.
As another person pointed out, “Can’t be Teen Mom OG if y’all have 2 new people who aren’t even part of the teen mom franchise smh.”
It is a pretty big oversight, considering the title of the show, you know?
Someone else popped in the comments with some sarcasm, writing “I saw a lady with a baby outside of Target today. She looked to be about 25 yrs old.”
“She was fighting on the phone with her boyfriend, so she fits 3 of the key factors. Hurry up MTV, give her a call!!!”
This comment addresses several other issues with Cheyenne’s casting, one being that she’s turning 26 next month and just gave birth to her first child last year.
Say what you will about Bristol Palin — seriously, say whatever, it’s cool — but at least she actually was a teen mom.
Sure, Cheyenne can probably bring the drama, but it feels like anyone starring on a show called Teen Mom should meet that one basic requirement.
Lots of people left comments to say that even though Farrah left the show, things could have gone on with just the three remaining cast members.
Many said that they’d fast-forward through Cheyenne and Bristol’s segments, and some said they’d stop watching altogether.
Quite a few even said that they felt the show should be cancelled at this point.
In conclusion, let’s let one commenter express what the rest of us are thinking:
“Wtf this sh-t is getting so stupid.”
Oh, isn’t it though …
Back in June, Josiah Duggar married Lauren Swanson in a ceremony that pretty much matched the blueprint for all Duggar weddings that preceded it.
But there was one important difference with Lauren and Josiah’s nuptials.
You see, unlike his siblings, when Josiah met his spouse, he was already no stranger in the ways of love.
In fact, he had extensive experience with hand-holding, chaperoned dates, and, yes … even side side-hugs.
As you may recall Josiah courted Marjorie Jackson before he met Lauren.
The relationship ended abruptly and without explanation after just three months.
Josiah later offered a vague explanation for his breakup with Marjorie, but fans still felt confused.
After all, Josiah and Marjorie may have been young, but the expectations for dating Duggars are extremely high and very specific.
The family describes courtship as “dating with a purpose” — that purpose being marriage, of course.
It’s unheard of for Duggar couples to call it quits after announcing a courtship, which is why fans were so weirded out when Josiah and Marjorie quietly went their separate ways.
And it’s also why they were confused a second time this week when Jinger Duggar’s husband Jeremy Vuolo posted the above photo on Instagram.
“A thoughtful birthday gift from my lovely wife: handwritten calligraphy of the words ‘Og mit liv’ for my office,” Jeremy explained in the caption.
Jeremy went on to explain that the quote comes from a missionary he admires.
But it’s the end of the caption that really caught his followers’ attention.
“Calligraphy by @marjorie.e.jackson,” Vuolo wrote.
Yes, that’s the very same Marjorie Jackson that courted Josiah.
Now, the Duggars are said to be a forgiving lot, so we guess it’s not terribly surprising that they’re not big on holding grudges.
But it’s worth noting that Josiah and Marjorie’s breakup was no amicable parting of ways.
Fans only learned of the split when Josiah deleted every photo of his ex from his Instagram page.
At one point, sources claimed the Duggars were concerned that Marjorie would write a tell-all about her time with the family.
So you can see why so many were caught off guard by the fact that Marjorie maintains ties with the family.
Of course, it makes sense that Jim Bob would keep a young, single fundamentalist like Marjorie in his Rolodex.
Dude has a lot of sons to marry off yet.
Right after Labor Day, Colton Underwood was confirmed as the next Bachelor.
Some fans are very excited, but other members of the Bachelor Nation are still a little wary of him.
According to what his ex, famed Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, wrote in her book, this next season of The Bachelor could be worse than Arie’s. …
While Aly Raisman did not call out Colton by name in her book, Fierce, RadarOnline reports that she describes an unhappy encounter with a man who could only be the next Bachelor.
“A professional athlete I’d been talking to for a while had invited me to visit him and watch one of his games,” Aly wrote.
Aly said that she had taken him up on his invitation despite the travel distance because “I figured I could use a distraction.”
“Saturday went well,” she shared, speaking of the day before the game. “The guy was attentive and fun, and we seemed to be having a good time.”
Aly reveals: “But when I met him Sunday after his game, he had turned into a completely different person.”
“We were in his car when I made a move to change the radio station,” she says.
This, apparently, is when things really went south.
“‘Don’t touch the music,’ he snapped,” Aly reports.
“I thought he was joking,” Aly explains. “So I continued to reach for the stereo buttons.”
“‘I’m not kidding — don’t touch it,’ he said sharply,” she narrates.
According to her, this handsome gentleman had some very ugly reasoning for insisting that he control the radio.
She reports that he told her: “‘I just played a game, and you just sat and watched. You haven’t done anything today.'”
“‘So we’ re going to listen to this sports radio station,'” she says that he said. “‘I want to hear what they say about me.’”
“I sat silently for the rest of the car ride,” Aly reveals. “I couldn’t wait to get out.”
We can imagine.
“I felt embarrassed,” after the incident, Aly admits.
“But,” she adds, she felt “also angry that I had traveled to see someone who treated me so disrespectfully.”
No one has the right to speak to anyone in the way that she describes. Apparently, the rest of the day didn’t really improve upon her experience.
“He was glued to his phone and ignored me as we sat and ate dinner,” she reveals.
Phone use is a normal part of life, but if someone flies out to see you for a weekend, maybe be less of a jerk.
“When I left for the airport,” Aly shared. “He hardly said good-bye.”
Speaking of this man — whom many believe to have been Colton — reminds us of Raven Gates’ words of warning.
“I just don’t think his intentions are good,” Raven told Tia Booth on Bachelor in Paradise.
“First of all, Colton’s past dating history has been the It Girl,” Raven reasoned. “You’re the It Girl from your season, and he reached out to you.”
“And then he went on Becca’s season, and now he’s back with you,” Raven pointed out. “All of his actions have said something different…”
Raven implored Tia: “You have to really see the true person that Colton is.”
That’s a fair point. People might have a hard time seeing past Colton Underwood’s virginity and his smile and his general handsomeness.
Just because a guy’s clearly not just out to get in your pants doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have an agenda.
If Raven is right, then Colton just gravitates towards the most popular girl around and uses her like an accessory to promote himself.
If Aly was really talking about Colton in her book, then it sounds like he has some major entitlement issues and can be a selfish jerk sometimes.
Besides, if the Bachelor Nation is right about Colton not really being a virgin, then he might also be a huge liar.
What are we getting ourselves into with this next season?
Earlier this week, Josh Duggar dared to show his face online again, rearing his ugly head in a family photo.
Fans were irate — and were so distracted that some didn’t immediately notice that something about Anna’s look was very conspicuous.
Now, however, these eagle-eyed Duggar fans believe that Anna Duggar is pregnant with baby #6!
Josh Duggar is so reviled that even people who like the Duggar family hate him, and those who dislike the Duggars as a whole still think that he’s worse than the rest.
That’s what happens when the world finds out that you molested little girls and got away with it.
So it is totally understandable that almost everyone’s attention was fully on Josh appearing in Anna Duggar’s Labor Day family photo.
But if you turn your attention to the right of the pic, you will notice that Anna is also partially off screen, even though she and Josh could have easily fit into the picture.
She could be hiding a baby bump.
But the fact that half of her body is excluded isn’t the only reason why fans think that she’s pregnant. Can you catch it?
While most of the comments are either from people going “yikes” about Josh appearing in a photo or, worse, from people defending him, others pointed out Anna’s dress.
These fans recognized it as the same floral print maternity gown that she was wearing not all that long ago.
While it’s totally possible to wear a maternity gown because it’s relatively comfortable and loose-fitting, fans can’t help but wonder if she is once again pregnant.
It has been almost exactly one year since Anna gave birth. Considering that we’re talking about the Duggar family, it is not unreasonable to think that she may be pregnant again.
Take a closer look at Anna and her gown.
If she is pregnant, it looks like she’s still at an early enough stage of her pregnancy that she can conceal an obvious baby bump by wearing a loose gown and by leaning forward.
(And, of course, by cropping off part of her body in the photo)
As we mentioned, it’s been a while since she gave birth. Mason Duggar will turn one year old in less than a week — on September 12.
Late last month, Anna revealed a health issue impacting baby Mason.
Maybe Mackynzie, age 8, Michael, age 7, Marcus, age 5, Meredith, age 3, and Mason, age 1-ish are going to get a baby sibling.
As we mentioned, the photo saw a number of passionate defenders speak up for Josh Duggar.
One commenter suggested that, in the future, Anna should simply disable comments when she shares a picture of Josh, so that she doesn’t have to look at the “hate.”
Another condemned Josh’s detractors, writing “society doesn’t understand true forgiveness,” as if holding child-molesters accountable is a strictly secular value.
(For the record, it is not, and we should note that other famous conservatives, including some Robertsons of Duck Dynasty fame, publicly urged Anna to divorce the creep)
One commenter even revealed that her own son had “gone through” what Josh had when he was 15, and expressed pity for these men for facing consequences for their actions. Wow.
Even if Anna is pregnant, you can bet that the discourse over Josh is not going away any time soon.
Some fans feel that, all things considered, it is simply too soon for Baby #6.
Others feel that, at this point, she’s as thoroughly linked to Josh as she can be, and another child won’t do any harm.
That said, it’s always possible that she was just wearing a comfortable, loose-fitting dress that still complies with Duggar rules.
In the mean time, fans think that they have proof that Lauran Swanson is pregnant with Josiah Duggar’s baby already.
