Mackenzie Standifer: Pregnancy Details FINALLY Revealed!

Last month, the world learned that Mackenzie Standifer is pregnant with her first child.

Shortly after the news went public, however, Ryan Edwards' wife watched her world fall apart before her eyes.

For starters, Edwards was arrested just days after the announcement.

Less than 24 hours after that shocking development, several media outlets reported that Ryan had been caught cheating on Mackenzie using the dating app Tinder.

Through it all, however, Mackenzie has stood by her man, and sources say she's thrilled to share her latest pregnancy update with fans:

1. Before the Fall

In the weeks leading up to Mackenzie’s pregnancy announcement, she and Ryan seemed to be doing quite well. Now, it appears that was all a charade.

2. A Rapid Decline

Ryan and Mackenzie overcame a great deal to get to that good place, and sadly, it all came tumbling down within days of her big announcement. And the downfall started with some shocking news…

3. Ryan’s Deception

In March, Ryan was arrested for a probation violation that stemmed from an earlier arrest for heroin possession. Somehow, Edwards had managed to keep that first brush with the law a secret.

4. Standifer Stands By Her Man

Mackenzie went to bat for Ryan after his arrest, telling at least one media outlet that he had not committed any new crimes and merely needed to be booked for his earlier charges.

5. Tinder Surprise

But even the ever-loyal Mackenzie must have found herself experiencing some doubts about her marriage when it was revealed that Ryan had contacted at least three different women using the dating app Tinder. He used his actual photo for his profile, but made up a fake bio.

6. Pressing On…

But despite rumors to the contrary, it seems Mackenzie has no intention of divorcing Ryan. And today, the troubled couple revealed to their loved ones not only the baby’s gender, but also the unusual name they’ve picked out.

Travis Scott’s Family FINALLY Meets Stormi Webster!

It’s been two months since Kylie Jenner welcomed her first child, but it seems the famous infant has yet to meet her entire extended family.

According to sources close to the couple, Kylie and her baby daddy, Travis Scott, took Stormi down to Texas recently to meet Travis’ family.

News of the trip was made public not by Kylie or Travis – who probably wanted to keep things on the down-low for obvious reasons – but by Travis’ brother, Joshua, who couldn’t contain his enthusiasm over finally getting to meet his new niece. 

“So happy to finally hold my beautiful Stormi,” Joshua wrote on social media.

An insider tells People magazine that Kylie, Travis, and Stormi arrived in Texas via private jet on Friday and spent the weekend visiting with Scott’s family in the Houston area.

While most of Travis’ immediate family members were able to make it to LA shortly after Stormi’s birth, for many of the rapper’s relatives, this was their first time laying eyes on one of the world’s most famous babies.

According to one insider, Scott’s “close family have spent a lot of time in L.A. with Stormi since she was born.”

The source notes, however, that Travis “has extended family in Texas that he wanted to celebrate Stormi with.” 

Travis went all out for Stormi’s big Houston debut, reportedly dropping more than $ 7,000 on two storm cloud flower arrangements, complete with Swarovski crystal raindrops.

Fortunately, it seems Kylie was every bit as excited about the trip as Travis.

“Kylie always seemed to enjoy spending time with Travis’ family in Texas,” says the source.

“During their relationship, they have often traveled there together.”

Yes, despite several months’ worth of rumors about Kylie and Travis breaking up, it seems Stormi’s parents are still going strong.

In fact, there have been reports that Kylie is trying to get pregnant again.

In all likelihood, fans are jumping the gun a bit on that one, but by all accounts, Kylie loves being a mom, and she and Travis are getting along better than ever.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Travis and Kylie decide to have more kids in the near future … but maybe not that near.


Catelynn Lowell: I’m Finally Sober!

Catelynn Lowell has made no secret of her struggles with mental illness and addiction in recent years.

While critics have called Catelynn a drug addict and attempted to stigmatize her battle with PTSD, the Teen Mom OG star has continued to serve as a reminder that those who face their demons should be applauded, not condemned.

No doubt many young moms in Lowell’s position would to to great lengths to hide their diagnoses for fear of public judgement.

But Cate has remained refreshingly candid every step of the way and has no doubt earned quite a few new fans in th process.

As The Ashley’s Reality Roundup points out, Catelynn made a major revelation about her sobriety over the weekend after a fan accused her of being an addict.

“Been sober for five months,” Lowell revealed.

Cate has stated in the past that her main addiction was to marijuana, and she says she now takes great pride in the fact that she hasn’t smoked in several months.

While marijuana is not the first substance that springs to mind when one thinks of a drug dependency, Catelynn’s course of treatment required her to free herself from all chemicals that she had been using as psychological crutches.

Lowell says that during her first stint in rehab, she became aware that she’s more dependent on pot than she had previously realized.

“She detoxed from marijuana while in treatment in which she admittedly used as a crutch for her anxiety,” an insider reportedly told Radar in January.

“She’s sober from alcohol too.”

Lowell made a previous attempt to quit smoking, but her mother-in-law Kim famously called her out in a 2016 episode of TMOG.

That same year, Catelynn was shown smoking pot while driving, which caused many fans to criticize her on social media.

Cate says she spent several years under the impression that marijuana was helping to reduce her anxiety and depression but now realizes it was simply making her emotional state even worse.

Now it seems quitting weed is another step in a long process that recently involved some major changes in her medication regimen:

“I feel way better,” Cate recently said on Kail Lowry‘s Coffee Convos podcast.

“I did a whole med switch and genetic testing. 

“I found out that the medication I was on for five years doesn’t even work for me,” she added.

“They put me on different medications and they seem to be working really well. It all stems from the trauma of my past so I’m going to have to keep digging into that.”

We wish Ms. Lowell all the best in her continued journey toward greater mental health.

Matt Lauer FINALLY Ousted From Home by Annette Roque

In the wake of Matt Lauer’s firing from NBC and the horrifying revelations about his behavior, his marriage has fallen apart.

For months now, Annette Roque has wanted Lauer out of her house. Now, it’s reported that he’s finally moved out.

But Roque apparently had to take drastic measures.

Us Weekly reports that Matt Lauer has moved out, at long last.

But their source reveals that he wasn’t exactly eager to go.

“Getting him to move out was quite daunting because Matt was refusing to leave.”

Despite Lauer and Roque’s divorce being underway, it sounds like he didn’t want to budge from the family residence.

And he apparently had one reason for dragging his heels.

“It was all about Matt, who expressed concern about how it would look to the media in the wake of being fired by NBC.”

As absurd as it sounds that he could be preoccupied with his public image, despite everything, that does fit in with reports that he believes that he has a second chance at his career.

The insider continues, saying that Lauer seems to not understand how all of this is hurting his family.

“Annette was simply at a loss for words because she had hoped that he would recognize this was best for her and the kids.”

Ultimately, she had to take drastic measures. The source says that she had to threaten legal action — which finally got him to pack his bags.

“Matt will always be more concerned about public perception and obviously doesn’t want to make headlines for being forced out of the house.”

It’s so sad to hear that he cares more about his image than about right and wrong.

Even with his departure, he’ll still be part of the lives of their children.

“Annette told him that there would never be any limitations on access to their kids.”

But things between the divorcing spouses are different. The source reports that they hardly communicate anymore.

“It’s minimal on good days.”

And the source continues, saying:

“But mostly nonexistent.”

All things considered, very few can blame Roque for not wanting to speak to the man who cheated on her. And adultery is the least of his alleged wrongdoings.

There have been reports that say that, despite everything, Matt Lauer believes that he can make a comeback.

Sure, most would like to believe that the man accused of multiple affairs, sexual harassment visited upon his subordinates, and of raping a woman in his office is as broken and ashamed as some have claimed.

But considering that Lauer reportedly used NBC as a hunting ground for years, going so far as to have a remote lock installed for his office door, it’s easy to believe that his worldview is so divorced from reality that he thinks that he can have a career again.

Perhaps he is thinking of the long history of men accused of doing evil, unforgivable things who somehow continue to have careers.

Convicted rapist Mike Tyson has his own show on Adult Swim. Woody Allen keeps making movies to critical acclaim. Chris Brown is still selling music. Johnny Depp is starring in the new Harry Potter movies.

But as much as those men are despised by many people, they weren’t exposed during the #MeToo movement. Matt Lauer was. Many hope that this will make the difference, and that he’ll never be able to claw his way back into social acceptance.

Contrary to what the reviled former NBC host might like to believe, Today is doing just fine without Matt Lauer.

In fact, ratings are higher than they’ve been in 5 years.

It’s possible that, one day, people will wax nostalgic about how awkwardly charming they found Lauer when he covered the Olympics and will be willing to forget what he was doing to his colleagues when the cameras weren’t running.

At the moment, however, many people familiar with the allegations against him don’t even want to look at him.

Annette Roque and her children are better off without having to share their home with him.


Catelynn Lowell: Roots of PTSD Finally Revealed?

In the past two years, Catelynn Lowell has checked into rehab three times.

While her journey toward greater emotional stability and mental health certainly hasn’t been an easy one, it’s yielded trendous results, making Lowell both a more fulfilled person and a spokesperson for those battling mental illness.

Earlier this week, Lowell revealed that she’s been diagnosed with PTSD.

“It’s panic disorder, PTSD – I like to call myself a trauma survivor – and it’s depression, but it’s co-occurring depression or something like that,” Lowell revealed in a candid interview.

“It will go away and it will come back with the panic disorder.”

Catelynn didn’t go into detail regarding the roots of her trauma, but in the past, she’s spoken at length about her difficult childhood.

Lowell’s father, David, helped shed new light on her painful past this week in a revealing interview with Radar Online:

“I don’t do drugs or drink so mostly it was when we had to move for my job when she was 12,” David told the site about the painful period during which he and his daughter were separated by distance.

“Kids don’t realize that parents have to do whatever it takes to pay support and insurance for their children, even if it means moving to do so.”

David added that his children were always taken care of financially, but said they may not have always received the emotional support they needed: 

“I was never a deadbeat dad. One thing I’ve always done is take care of my kids,” he claimed.

“That we both had a hard time dealing with. But we called frequently.”

David went on to reveal that he suspects Catelynn’s mother didn’t always provide a stable home life:

“What her mother did with the money – many different boyfriends and moving all the time – I couldn’t say

 As for how Catelynn is faring following her latest rehab stint, David his daughter is in a “wonderful” state of mind.

“She’s doing her aftercare like a champ,” he tells Radar.

“I did go with her to a holistic approach therapist. I believe this is the first time she’s tried it. It involves breathing techniques, aromatics, and of course, talking.”

Closing on a hopeful night, David adds:

“I think she’s won the battle, but staying humble about it. It’s a lifelong affliction.”
