Josh Duggar Is Breaking the Law Again: Will He FINALLY Go to Jail?!

When Josh Duggar molested five young girls, he avoided arrest and prosecution with the help of his parents.

In the years since the scandal came to light, many Duggar fans have hoped that the long arm of the law would eventually catch up to Josh.

According to a new report from Radar Online, Josh has once again been caught breaking the law.

But it doesn’t look as though he’ll be imprisoned for his most recent infractions.

The site claims that Wholesale Motorcars in Washington County, Arkansas — which Josh has managed since 2015 — has been operating without a permit for the entirety of his tenure.

“We have one zoning designation in the county to allow single-family residential or agricultural uses,” a planning official in Washington County told Radar.

“Anything else requires a conditional use permit to request a zoning change.”

Officials claim Josh just started a business on non-commercial property without notifying the proper authorities.

When a local fire marshal noticed Josh’s failure to obtain the proper licensing, he reported the father of five.

As we’ve reported in the past, Josh is hated in his hometown, but his father, Jim Bob Duggar, still enjoys a tremendous amount of clout.

As such, Josh was given a second chance to comply with the law.

“The fire marshal wasn’t going to issue any more extensions,” the planning authority told Radar.

“He was requiring that Josh make a good faith attempt, or make effort, toward receiving a review and permit approval, so that’s what he did.”

And so, Josh was given time to apply for the mandatory permits and make the necessary repairs — of which there were many.

Reports indicate that Josh didn’t display the building’s address anywhere on its exterior (a shady detail if ever there was one)/

Also, his property had no smoke detectors and was generally in a state of disrepair.

Of course, the Duggars have violated local zoning laws before, most recently when Jim Bob attempted to open a “luxury RV park” without notifying local officials.

Like Josh, Jim Bob was in no way held accountable for his violations.


Teresa Giudice Finally Responds: Will She Divorce Joey G?

You’ve likely heard the rumors.

You’ve probably read the headlines.

But now we have the answer.

About four months after Joe Giudice was told he was going to be deported next year after he gets released from jail, his famous wife has answered the question that continues to hang over her and her family.

Will she or won’t she divorce Joe in light of this troubling development?

Joe, who has been featured prominently on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, pleaded guilty years ago to multiple counts of financial fraud.

He was subsequently sentenced to over 40 months behind bars, a stint he is currently serving.

In late June, a judge decreed that Giudice (who moved here from Italy as a child, yet never became a United States citizen) must move back to his native country once he’s a free man because he’s an immigrant who committed a felony.

It’s as simple as that.

But Teresa and Joe’s relationship seems complicated.

Can it survive such a traumatic jolt as one half no longer being permitted to live in America?

Is Teresa devastated by this news or secretly celebrating her upcoming freedom?

Asked by Entertainment Tonight over the weekend when she would ever divorce her husband, Teresa answered succinctly:

“No. We’re going to be a family, and we’re going to fight this and get through this.”

Teresa and Joe pleaded guilty to numerous charges of fraud in 2014.

The mother of four was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison and started her sentence in January of 2015, but was released early.

Then, earlier this year, 31 months into his sentence, the U.S. Department of Justice confirmed that Joe had been ordered to leave the United States at the end of his prison sentence.

(He has fewer than 30 days to appeal the decision.)

But will he be going alone? Or might the entire Giudice clan uproot their lives to keep him company?

“We are not even thinking about [whether we’d move to Italy] right now. We’re going to take it day by day. We’re going to take it one step at a time,” Teresa told ET, adding:

“First, we’re going to process the paperwork to do an appeal, and we’re going to get through that.”

Continues Giudice:

“I can’t predict the future, and I am not going to be… I am going to be positive about it,” she said. “Joe starts talking about [the deportation order] and I don’t want to talk about it yet…

“I shut him down. I don’t want to talk about it, and what comes first is our daughters and we’re going to fight this.”

The embattled couple has four children:

17-year-old Gia, 14-year-old Gabriella, 13-year-old Milania and 9-year-old Audriana.

In response to her dad’s situation, Gia recently tried to rally support for her imprisoned father.

“My father is no threat to society,” she wrote as a caption to a throwback photo of dad and daughter, adding:

“He is one of the most warm hearted people I know…

“My father did his time. And learned from his mistakes. Isn’t being in there supposed to make you realize your mistakes so you can become a better person?”


Khloe Kardashian: FINALLY Ready to Dump Tristan Thompson?!

Another NBA season is upon us, which means Tristan Thompson will be spending much of the next several months traveling with the Cleveland Cavs. 

And it seems Khloe Kardashian is not too keen on the idea of spending her winter wondering if her husband is sleeping around.

As you’re no doubt aware, Tristan spent much of last season cheating on Khloe while she was pregnant with his child.

Against all odds, the couple patched things up over the offseason, but it seems the peace they reached was tentative at best.

Now, with Tristan returning his attention to basketball, it seems Khloe is harboring some serious doubts about the future of her relationship.

“She very much seems over Tristan,” a source close to the situation tells People magazine.

“Not sure how they went from fine to being apart for weeks, but Khloe is doing great.”

The source adds that Khloe has not followed Tristan back to Cleveland, as was expected — but for the time being, everyone seems content with the current living situation:

“It doesn’t seem to bother her that she isn’t with Tristan in Cleveland,” the insider says.

“She seems to know what she wants in her life right now. And it definitely doesn’t seem like she wants to be with Tristan.”

As for whether or not Khloe and Tristan have officially broken up, it seems the couple is remaining mum in the issue for now:

“Khloe isn’t saying that she and Tristan split. It seems she hasn’t decided yet what she wants to do about their relationship,” the source tells People.

“And she seems fine about this.”

For months, we’ve been hearing reports of the Kardashians pressuring Khloe to dump Tristan, so it should come as no surprise that Kim and company are quite pleased by this development:

“Her family is happy that she is still in L.A. and wants her around for as long as possible,” the insider says.

“No one is pushing for her to go back to Cleveland to be with Tristan. This will be her decision to make.”

But despite the dissolution of both her relationship and the dreams of a traditional nuclear family that have been with her since childhood, those her know her best say Khloe has never been happier:

“It’s amazing to see what a great mom she is and how much she enjoys it,” says the insider.

“She is very much just focused on the happy things in her life. True, of course, makes her the happiest.”

Sounds like Khloe is once again focused on doing what’s best for her baby — and for herself.


Jenelle Evans: Is She Finally Getting Fired from Teen Mom 2?!

Can you imagine working with Jenelle Evans?

Seriously, just take a moment to sit back and really let yourself think about what it would be like to go to work and have to deal with this girl.

It would be absolute madness, right?

And that's what MTV has been putting up with for years.

It's honestly kind of shocking that she hasn't been fired yet, considering everything she's done and how she behaves and just who she is as a person.

But could the firing still be coming?

1. What a Mystery

For real though, why does Jenelle still have a job?

2. Well …

We all know why — because she brings that trashy reality show drama like no one else.

3. Real Talk

We’d be lying if we said that Jenelle’s craziness isn’t a huge part of why Teen Mom 2 has been so popular over the years.

4. On the Other Hand …

But at what cost?

5. Criminelle

What other job would be cool with employees showing up to work high and doing heroin with their sketchy boyfriends while on the clock?

6. Garbagenelle

What other job would allow employees to scream and cry while working, and even refuse to work at all while still getting paid?

Ryan Edwards: Leaving Rehab Early to Finally Meet His Son?

Last week, we reported on the news that Ryan Edwards had checked into rehab after struggling with an opioid addiction for several years.

Shortly thereafter, the world learned that Edwards' wife, Mackenzie Standifer, had given birth to a son.

Jagger Edwards is the couples' first child together, but sadly, Ryan missed the birth due to his continued treatment.

As painful as the thought of missing his son's first weeks on the planet must have been, it was widely assumed that Edwards would remain in treatment in order to ensure that he receives the kind of help he needs.

Sadly, it doesn't look like that will be the case …

1. Taking the Right Steps

While Edwards was aware that he would miss Jagger’s birth by checking into treatment, it seems he was also aware that his situation required immediate action.

2. Joyous News

Ryan’s parents, Jen and Larry Edwards, were also in the hospital the day the baby was born.

4. Ryan’s Hope

Insiders say the impending arrival of his son helped motivate Ryan to seek help.

5. Plenty of Reasons

Of course, the fact that Ryan has been arrested three times in the past 18 months and is very keen on avoiding jail time probably also factored into his decision.

6. Easier Said Than Done

Ryan initially planned to remain in treatment for a minimum of three months, but now it seems his plans have changed …

Mackenzie McKee: My Mom Is FINALLY Done With Chemo!

There was a time when it looked as though Mackenzie McKee would replace Farrah Abraham on Teen Mom OG.

Ultimately, the show’s producers decided to go in a different direction, casting Bristol Palin and Cheyenne Floyd instead.

But fan interest in Mackenzie and her family remains at an all-time high.

Fortunately, we’ve been able to keep up on the latest developments with the McKees thanks to Mackenzie’s social media posts and a recent Where Are They Now? Teen Mom special that checked in on the family.

As you may recall, Mackenzie’s mother, Angie Douthit, suffers from stage 4 cancer.

Both Angie and Mackenzie have made the courageous decision to offer regular updates during this intensely difficult time in hopes that they might serve as an inspiration to others who are struggling.

And this week, Angie was finally able to share some good news with fans in the form of the video below.

In the clip, Douthit triumphantly rings a bell to celebrate the end of her intravenous chemo treatments.

“I got to ring the bell!” Angie wrote on Instagram.

“I wore my Wonder Woman shirt because I wore it to my first chemo treatment and thought it only fitting to wear it to my last IV chemo treatment.”

She went on to demonstrate the humor and optimism that have endeared her to so many Teen Mom fans over the years:

“(Yes, I wore it to school all day too!) I was the first one to ring the new bell that wasn’t even mounted to the wall yet. Ringing the bell signifies that I’m finished with all my rounds of chemo.

“Although I’m still taking a chemo pill everyday, I’m through with IV chemo.”

Proving once again that she’s an almost impossibly selfless person, Douthit stated that one of her favorite parts of completing this stage of treatment was seeing how happy it made her husband:

“Brad and I celebrated last night with dinner at his favorite restaurant,” she wrote.

“Watching him be so relaxed and celebrating brought joy to my heart. God has been so good.

“I haven’t been very sick from the chemo, I’m still working, and I still have my eyelashes lol,” Angie continued.

“It was 18 weeks of being carried by the love of God… I have no control over my future,” she added.

“None of us do. But, we can relax and be calm knowing our big God is in control because he loves us so much!”

The post is a far cry from the one Angie wrote back in June, in which she opened up about how much she was dreading the chemotherapy process.

“This morning we leave at 7:30 to begin another new journey,” Douthit wrote at the time.

“IV chemo… As I’ve shared before, I dread chemo. However, God revealed to me that if I never had to go through IV chemo I would never fully understand cancer.”

Sadly, Angie is not out of the woods yet, but the thoughts and prayers of millions are with her as she completes her recovery.

Here’s hoping for another upbeat update in the very near future.


Maci Bookout: Ryan Edwards Is FINALLY Being a Dad to Bentley!

If you’ve been keeping up on the tumultuous life of Ryan Edwards, then you’re probably aware that Maci Bookout’s baby daddy has been having an extremely rough go of it lately.

Granted, most of his problems are self-created, but that doesn’t make the situation any less painful for everyone involved.

And sadly, no one has suffered quite as much as Ryan’s son, Bentley.

As you may know, Maci obtained a restraining order against Ryan earlier this year, which prohibited him from having any contact with the 9-year-old.

That may sound harsh, but considering Ryan had threatened to kill her husband, Maci was really left with little choice.

And we’re not even getting into Ryan’s many drug arrests and persistent refusal to seek treatment.

At first, it seemed to be one of those situations that would simply never improve.

But miraculously, it now looks as though Ryan has re-entered his son’s life — with a lot of help from Maci.

“Bentley has gotten older and is kind of understanding a little bit more about what’s going on. I don’t want to say they’ve gotten closer, but I think that it’s gotten healthier only because I think it relieves some of the pressure from each of them,” Bookout, told Us Weekly in a recent exclusive interview.

“Bentley was a child, like, wondering what’s really going on,” she added.

“I think if the right steps are taken from here, then it will end up good.”

Maci went on to say that she’s struggled with how much information she should share with Bentley, torn between wanting to protect her child and wanting him to know the truth:

“You don’t want to smother them, but you also want to make sure that they come to you with anything that they’re thinking or feeling or any questions that they may want answers to,” she said.

“It’s really just a matter of keeping the line of communication open and also making sure that we aren’t telling too much or giving too much of our feelings or opinions,” Maci added.

“It’s more about information, rather than speaking about his dad because at the end of the day, Ryan is still his dad,” Bookout concluded.

“Neither one of us want to ever put some sort of barrier between the possibility of a better relationship when it comes to Ryan and Bentley.”

Needless to say, this is the first good news on Ryan we’ve received in quite some time.

And it sounds like we mostly have Maci to thank for it.


Laura DeMasie: Jana Duggar’s Alleged Girlfriend FINALLY Addresses Relationship Rumors

If you’re a Duggar fan, then you’re likely aware that Jana Duggar is single.

Jana’s marital status is a big deal among Duggar obsessives, as most of the women in her family are well on their way to spawning a legion of flannel-clad fundies by the time they turn 28.

There are many theories as to why Jana might still be single.

And of course, very few of them take into account such eminently logical explanations as “she hasn’t met the right guy,” or “she might just prefer being single.”

Instead, every few weeks a new theory emerges to explain why Jana insists on bucking the family trend, and most of them involve some scandalous secret that the Duggars are supposedly going to great lengths to keep buried.

The latest has to do with Jana’s longtime friend Laura DeMasie.

Given the amount of time these two spend together and the fact that they’ve both defied expectations by remaining single, we suppose it was only a matter of time before fans began speculating that Jana and Laura are dating.

And if it were true, it would be a deeply satisfying narrative:

Two women in a male-dominated frontier finding solace in one another’s arms, like some sort of reality-TV version of a Willa Cather novel.

But of course, the Duggars are not deriving as much pleasure from the Jana-Laura love story as the rest of us.

Asked point-blank on Twitter this week if Jana and Laura are romantically involved, the ever-outspoken Derick Dillard replied simply, “uh no.”

Apparently, that wasn’t blunt enough for one fan, who replied:

“Derick you should have put just ‘no’ the ‘uh’ implies you don’t know lol, so this is not confirmation for the masses.” 

That led Laura to speak out on the matter herself:

“How about this then: no,” she replied.

Jeez, you would’ve thought someone accused her of something truly scandalous, like preferring Applebee’s to Chili’s.

Jana still hasn’t spoken out on the matter, but that’s at least partially due to the fact that partially due to the fact that as an unmarried Duggar woman, she’s not allowed to use social media.

So for now at least, we guess the Jana-Laura love story is dead and buried.

Fortunately, Duggar fans will always have their fan fiction.
