Jill Duggar and Lauren Swanson: Unexpected Feud Alert!

It’s only been a few weeks since Lauren Swanson married Josiah Duggar, but it seems the newest member of reality TV’s favorite fundamentalist family is already clashing with her in-laws.

Yes, it seems the latest Duggar wedding didn’t quite go according to plan — and Lauren may feel that one of Josiah’s many siblings is partially to blame.

Jill Duggar-Lauren Swanson

The speculation that Jill Duggar and Lauren Swanson are not exactly getting along began when Jill posted a link on her Instagram page promising “New pics and videos up! link in bio!!”

Jill promptly deleted the link without explanation, leading fans to theorize that she was instructed to do so by Lauren.

Of course, pics and videos from the wedding are everywhere on the internet.

So why would Lauren lay the smackdown on Jill in such public fashion?

Well, that’s where this story gets interesting.

As we said earlier, Josiah and Lauren were not able to get hitched without a hitch.

In fact, it sounds like the wedding was more or less a disaster.

Guests described the event as a “chaotic,” disorderly affair that seemed to have been thrown together at the last minute.

Now given how many times Josiah and Lauren’s wedding date changed, it’s possible that it was thrown together at the last minute, but that’s a conversation for another time.

At this point, you might be thinking:

So the wedding was a mess. What does that have to do with Jill?

Well, possibly nothing. But possibly everything.

Jill is the oldest married Duggar woman of her generation.

As such, she assumes certain responsibilities, among them — you guessed it — assisting with wedding planning.

In the past, Jill has proven up to the task, but this time it seems she may have dropped the ball.

Another theory holds that Jill rushed to post the pics so that she could cash in on the ensuing traffic.

You see, Jill quit Counting On after her husband, Derick Dillard, was fired from the show last year.

Since then, money has been tight around the Dillard household (as will happen when you have two kids and no income) , and some fans think Jill tried to score a little extra cash by being the first to link to her brother’s wedding pics.

It’s also possible that TLC put the kibosh on Jill’s efforts, as they no longer have a working relationship with Jill.

Whatever the case, it’s an interesting situation.

Duggar feuds are nothing new, but a newcomer like Lauren coming after an OG like Jill?

Now, that could make for some entertaining television.


Alex Rodriguez vs. Michael Strahan: Unexpected Feud Alert!

What does the most-hated man in the New York sports world have in common with one of its most-beloved figures?

Well, as it turns out, they’re both on TV, and they both can’t stand each other!

A-Rod and Michael Strahan

Yes, according to Radar Online, Michael Strahan and Alex Rodriguez are locked in a heated competition for airtime.

“Alex Rodriguez is everywhere!” an insider tells the site.

“Michael is feeling overshadowed — even though he’s six-foot-five!”

Yes, it seems Strahan is concerned about the possibility of Rodriguez edging him out as the TV world’s most in-demand former athlete.

Apparently, Michael was okay with Alex calling baseball games but now feels the disgraced ex-Yankee is trampling on his turf.

Sources claim Strahan was not happy when Rodriguez landed a spot on ABC’s Shark Tank and was seriously pissed off when the boyfriend of Jennifer Lopez was hired by Good Morning America.

Strahan, of course, has been a regular on GMA since 2016, and it seems he feels the show simply isn’t big enough for two retired jocks.

“Michael was irate,” a source spilled.

“He immediately felt threatened that Alex is being groomed to replace him.”

Part of the problem, it seems, is that Strahan and Rodriguez have remarkably similar personalities:

“They both have massive egos,” the insider says.

“Michael is seething that all anybody talks about is A-Rod.”

In addition, Strahan reportedly doesn’t believe the scandal-plagued Rodriguez deserves a second shot at stardom.

“Michael can’t believe the image renovation Alex has gotten on TV,” the source claims.

“He used to be hated. Now Michael is telling pals Alex is set to replace him!”

Frankly, we have a hard time believing this story.

Not because of how chill Strahan seems on TV.

Any seasoned media vet can fake a persona, and the man obviously has a competitive streak inside him, so it’s not hard to imagine him clashing with a younger up-and-comer.

No, the reason we’re not buying that Strahan feels threatened is that dude is on TV more than Big Bang Theory reruns.

We literally have no idea how the hell he sleeps.

The man is up at 5 am for Good Morning America; he films random crap like $ 100,000 Pyramid in the afternoons, and all football season he has to pretend to laugh at Terry Bradshaw’s jokes while doing Fox’s NFL pre-game show.

Besides, even if Strahan and A-Rod are really in direct competition with one another, at least they can both take comfort in the fact that they’re not Joe Buck.

Truly, there’s no worse fate than that.


Farrah Abraham Vs. Drita D’Avanzo: HILARIOUS New Feud Alert!

That Farrah Abraham, always getting into trouble with that big, silly mouth of hers!

Except this time, Farrah made have run that mouth about the wrong person.

Seriously, she really messed up this time.

OK, so are you familiar with Drita D’Avanzo? She was on Mob Wives, she was friends with the legendary Big Ang, and she’s known for having a bit of a temper.

Like, she was arrested a couple of years ago for beating her neighbor over a parking spot. Drita does not play around.

Anyway, Drita and Farrah appeared together at the opening of an Atlantic City club on Thursday night, and afterwards, Farrah took to her Instagram to rant about the experience.

In a live video, she explained “I normally don’t do joint appearances because to be honest, I am done with other quote unquote reality people.”

“I feel like they’re either hung up on drugs, drinking, f-cked up, unprofessional, just f-cking nasty pieces of sh-t on earth.”

It’s funny, because Farrah is most definitely in the category of “reality people,” and there are many of her peers that would likely call her “f-cked up, unprofessional, just f-cking nasty pieces of sh-t on earth.”

But that’s a conversation for another day.

Without saying Drita’s name, Farrah siad “You have someone show up and like talk to the owner about how you couldn’t send her her freaking money at my dinner table because she didn’t want to eat together, but then she can’t even do the photos for the club, she can’t meet anymore, she can’t talk to anyone, then she just disappears!”

“Here’s my vibe,” she continued. “If you can’t be professional to show up to work, don’t cry to other people when you have no money, no work, no nothing … because you are nothing.”

“I’m sorry, if you are replaceable in the workforce, no one wants to hire you — that’s not everyone’s fault, that is your fault.”

She told her followers that “I had to release this, because I am done. I don’t even know why they even shared my night with someone who is a has-been.”

“I’m like, give me a break, it’s either you’re nice, you’re amazing, you have a good work ethic, or stay the f-ck out of my way!”

Again, it’s funny, because she’s never nice or amazing, right? Is she honestly this delusional?

Well, yes.

But that’s what happened when Farrah met Drita.

And when Page Six reached out to Drita for a comment on what Farrah had said, the Mob Wives star said “I’m going to slap the sh-t out of that Mr. Ed-looking f-cker.”

You’re already living for this feud, right?

Drita also said that she wasn’t too clear on who Farrah is, and that she thinks she’s “an unemployed porn star.”

She “doesn’t care if she’s a hooker,” but still, “she f-cked with the wrong person.”

She repeated those comments in a video she shared on Instagram last night:

It seems like in the time between the interview and the Instagram video, she figured out that Farrah’s famous for being on Teen Mom OG, but she still thinks that later “she became a hooker or some sh-t.”

But that doesn’t bother her — she explained that what does bother her is that Farrah was nice to her face, and then later “ripped me to shreds.”

“I don’t know who you dealt with in the past,” Drita said, “but you got the wrong motherf-cker.”

“I no longer assault anybody, because the last time someone tried to test me they ended up putting me in jail. You’re not worth it.”

“However,” she added, “I might have to make an exception.”

It’s at this point that you really start to appreciate how badly Farrah messed up, right?

For what it’s worth though, Drita did say that “I’m not gonna closed fist punch your face in, I’m gonna open hand smack the f-ck out of you, straight up, on sight. Just so you know.”

Small miracles, huh?

If you’ve already gotten so invested in this amazing new reality star feud, don’t worry — we have one more bit of news!

Farrah saw Drita’s comments about her comments, and she addressed her on Twitter directly, writing one of her most aggressive word salads yet!

“F-cking low class trash dusted up nobody show up and work you have no work ethic and act like a criminal say what you want about me so you feel better about how pathetic you are!” she tweeted.

“Use me for press haha your a loser go get a real job my lawyer will be contacting you Psycho.”


She also tweeted “Dinner & Atlantic City was fabulous I hope the clown fixes her drug problem & her abusive relationship.”

“Girl I’m rootin for ya but have self control & don’t threaten my safety such a bad look on top of not working no wonder you don’t get paid.”

Can’t wait to see what happens next!


Jimmy Fallon Roasts Donald Trump Mercilessly After Twitter Feud

After Jimmy Fallon tried to walk back some of his 2016 friendliness towards Donald Trump, the POTUS let him have it on Twitter. 

Specifically, Trump demanded that Jimmy Fallon "man up" and not apologize for humanizing Trump during a critical election year.

Fallon responded by donating to a group working to help immigrants. He also went after Trump in a monologue. Watch!

Jimmy fallon tussles donald trumps hair

So, Jimmy Fallon expressed regrets for that shameful incident in which he had Donald Trump on as a guest during the 2016 election.

At the time, Fallon ruffled Trump's hair as if Trump were just some eccentric reality star and not a clear and present danger to American ideals and freedoms.

Trump saw Fallon's regrets and, as he is want to do, flipped out on Twitter. So Jimmy Fallon responded in his monologue.

"Before we begin," Fallon tells his audience. "I just wanna give a shout out to our show’s number one fan — the President of the United States!"

Picking up on his intention, the audience applauds — something that you're not likely to hear Trump elicit outside of one of his infamous rallies.

Fallon slash trump

Jimmy sets the stage.

"As you may have heard last night," Fallon says, explaining the premise. "The President of the United States went after me on Twitter."

"So Melania, if you're watching, I don't think your anti-bullying campaign is working."

Melania's proposed bullying campaign has been a source of many jokes, even before she shared that it was called "Be Best."

It seems that Melania doesn't really care.

"When I saw that Trump insulted me on Twitter," Fallon explains. "I was gonna tweet back immediately, but I thought, 'I have more important things to do.'"

That line, of course, is just a set-up for his punchline.

"Then I thought, 'Wait, shouldn't he have more important things to do?!'" Fallon exclaims. "He's the president! What are you doing? Why are you tweeting at me?"

Many have lamented that Trump spends so much time on Twitter. But that pales beside his record-breaking time spent golfing.

"Crazy," Fallon says. "The President went after me on Twitter. It's pretty much the only thing I have in common with NFL players."

Trump has, of course, been famously critical of football players who kneel in protest of rampant anti-black violence.

"In response," Fallon says, reiterating what he had already tweeted. "I made a donation in Trump's name to the Refugee And Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services."

RAICES is an organization that many see as the perfect counter to Trump's preference of placing refugees, asylum seekers, and others who cross the border in internment camps.

"Or RAICES," Fallon says, leading up to his next joke. "When Trump heard that, he was like: 'I love RAICES, they're my favorite peanutbutter cup.'"

Fallon then proceeds to deliver some mild burns to Trump.

"A new poll found that 58 percent of Americans think President Trump is intelligent," Fallon cites.

Sorry if that statistic crushes the final vestiges of anyone's lingering faith in humanity or the American public.

Fallon jokes: "In response, Trump was like, 'Ok, what did the other 58 percent say?'"

Fallon then moves on to poking fun at Trump's lack of geopolitical savvy.

"And today at the White House, Trump met with the King and Queen of Jordan," Fallon says. "Which got awkward when Trump thanked the King of Jordan for giving us Michael."

That line refers to Michael Jordan, a famous baseball player.

Fallon then went on to make quips about Sarah Huckabee Sanders getting asked to leave a restaurant and then about Trump's angry Twitter response that better resembled a Yelp review.

Jimmy fallon on his show

Is Jimmy Fallon especially funny? Not in this monologue.

(You can enjoy the monologue because of its politics without finding it to be a laugh riot)

Should he be forgiven for his hair-ruffling humanization of Donald Trump during such a critical election year? Probably not, but history will be the judge.

But it is definitely not appropriate for the President of the United States to use his position to attack comedians. Or restaurants. Or political rivals. Or, you know, people with brown skin.

Considering that Trump locked up a couple thousand kids in cages and called for Samantha Bee to be fired, his attack on Fallon was relatively mild.

Good for Fallon for using the opportunity to donate to a good cause, though. He deserves credit for that.

Kate Middleton vs. Meghan Markle: Royal Feud Alert!

It’s been over a month since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, and by all accounts, she’s adjusting to her new lifestyle quite nicely.

And it seems she’s doing so without any assistance from the only person on the planet who can truly identify with her situation.

Yes, there was a time when Kate Middleton showed Meghan Markle how to dress for official engagements and otherwise helped to prepare her for life as a royal.

But now, it seems those days are done.

At least that’s the dubious claim being made by the gossip site Closer Weekly.

The site claims that shortly after the wedding, Kate stopped viewing Meghan as a friend in need of advice, and started looking at her as an adversary.

“Meghan learned everything from Kate. But since the wedding, Kate feels like Meghan has barely made any effort with her and is more interested in impressing [Queen Elizabeth],” a source claims.

“In all fairness, Meghan has been busy. But Kate feels like she’s put a lot of effort into their friendship and hasn’t gotten much in return.”

Yes, according to the informant, Kate feels that she and Meghan are in direct competition for the Queen’s affection.

And it’s for that reason that Kate has stopped offering guidance to her former friend.

“She’s a nice person and doesn’t want to see Meghan fall flat on her face, but at the same time she’s cut back on giving her advice,” the insider reports.

The source claims the feud was apparent to royal-watchers during the recent Trooping the Color event.

Meghan was “dress-shamed” for wearing a shoulder-baring ensemble that many traditionalists felt was inappropriate.

Those who claim to know the family best say there was a time when Kate would have warned Meghan about the criticism she would have received.

Now, it seems those days are done. 

“She could have saved Meghan from embarrassment. But she didn’t say anything,” the source claims.

If that’s true, that’s some Regina George-level passive-aggressiveness from Kate, and we applaud her for it.

One insider says the real issue isn’t that Kate is worried about losing her spot as the Queen’s favorite, but rather that she feels betrayed by Meghan, whom she had previously thought of as one of her best friends.

These days, the source claims, Kate and Meg are “barely on speaking terms” and the entire royal family can feel the tension.

“Kate feels left out. [Kate] spent years working on her image as ‘the perfect royal,’ and Meghan is stealing her thunder,” the tipster claims.

“The popularity contest has caused a lot of friction at the palace.”

The source adds:

“Since marrying into royal life, Kate no longer has many friends. She really relied on Meghan as a pal and feels utterly betrayed and dropped by her [best friend].

“She hasn’t confronted Meghan yet, but Meghan can sense something is up. Meghan has gone through enough petty drama with her family. She doesn’t need it from her friends”

Well, at least Meg’s royal life isn’t as boring as it appears from the outside.

Megyn Kelly vs. Hoda Kotb Feud Heats Up at NBC!

When Megyn Kelly made the move from Fox News to NBC last year, everyone involved seemed well aware that they were in for an awkward transition.

But in all likelihood, no one had any idea of just how messy things would get.

Kelly has struggled to find an audience at her new network, and it seems it’s not just viewers that she’s struggling to connect with.

From the start of her time at NBC, reports of Kelly’s “diva-like” behavior have been circulating non-stop.

Insiders say she’s been alienating her co-workers since day one, and talk of firing Kelly is not uncommon in the NBC boardroom.

Yes, it seems Kelly hasn’t won anyone over in her first year at NBC, but there’s one co-worker who really isn’t buying what Megyn is selling.

In the wake of the Matt Lauer sex scandal, Hoda Kotb has emerged as the closest thing the Today franchise has to a rising star.

She’s taken Lauer’s place as one of the anchor’s of the programming block’s most popular segment and won over innumerable viewers.

And yet she’s still being paid less than a third of Kelly’s yearly salary.

Sources at the network tell In Touch Weekly that Hoda has made no secret of her disdain for Kelly, and the mutual enmity was on full display at the recent NBC Upfronts.

“Hoda and Savannah were standing close to each other and laughed as they exited the stage while Megyn fell back behind them,” said one onlooker at the press event.

“Hoda’s star has risen while Megyn’s has fallen,” the insider adds.

“She’s ready to exercise her newfound power by telling [Megyn] to get with the program. The feud has turned nasty.”

Yes, it seems Kotb’s issues with Kelly’s salary and personality are dwarfed by her concerns about the effect the former Fox News firebrand is having on the Today show brand.

“She’s the ultimate team player,” the source says of Kotb, adding that she’s widely regarded as “one of the kindest, most welcoming, and nonjudgmental people in show business.”

The insider concedes that Kotb is bothered by the fact that she makes a mere $ 7 million to Megyn’s $ 23 million, but her main issue is the fact that Kelly’s ratings have plummeted 11 percent in her first year as part of Today.

“She’s taken the high road publicly,” the insider says of Hoda.

But Kotb’s been at NBC long enough to know that what’s bad for one segment of Today is bad for the entire franchise.

So when asked by her bosses for an honest assessment of Megyn’s performance, Hoda offered exactly that:

“Megyn’s just not cutting it,” the source says bluntly.

“The top brass at NBC wanted to know where they went wrong with Megyn, and they’ve asked certain staffers what they should do,” the insider adds.

“Hoda was honest. She said it’s a likability problem. Megyn’s not relatable.” 

Despite what’s being described as a steadily escalating feud, both sides are reportedly keeping things civil in the workplace.

“Hoda and Megyn remain cordial to each other on camera, but they barely speak to each other once they’ve stopped rolling,” said the source.

“And Savannah is squarely on Team Hoda. It’s not looking like the tension will let up anytime soon between these three.”

Sounds like this situation will get uglier before it gets better.

Hey, if ratings continue to be an issue, maybe center a reality show spinoff on the backstage drama at Today?

We know we’d be tuning in!
