We probably don't need to tell you that David Eason is not a good guy.
He's a bigot and a shameless opportunist, and there's very good reason to believe he's guilty of child abuse.
But despite his many, many flaws, as far as anyone can tell, David is not guilty of viewing, producing, or distributing child porn.
So for once, the former Teen Mom 2 star's latest temper tantrum might actually be justified …

Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd’s friendship might never be the same again.
Monday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County picked up in the aftermath of the fight that found new housewife, Emily Simpson, threatening to kill Kelly.
But Vicki wanted to know how her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, wound up being put on blast. If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know that Kelly was livid to learn that Steve was friends with her ex-husband.
For Kelly, it was like a betrayal, and it was made worse that her then-BFF Vicki failed to see the issue with all of it.
Gunvalson unpacked what went down with Tamra Judge and Emily.
“Kelly thinks Steve’s mad at her, and I don’t know what’s going on,” Gunvalson solemnly said to her friends. “And now, Steve doesn’t want anything to do with her.”
“Shane neither,” said Simpson as though anybody cared whether her pot stirrer husband would be friends with the newest cougar in Orange County, adding “he doesn’t have time for it.”
In all honesty, Shane was the one who butted in when Dodd was trying to get the answers from Steve, so if anything, he should be apologizing to Kelly for trying to sink her storyline to get one of his own.
Emily then went on to say that she was wrong about the way she reacted to Kelly.
“I probably shouldn’t have said, ‘I’m going to kill you, but obviously it’s a figure of speech,” she said, trying to defend her actions.
“[Kelly] said the entire time, ‘I just wanna go talk to Steve and fix it,'” added Tamra of the whole scenario.
“She doesn’t give a rat’s a— about Steve, and I guarantee you she wants to see our relationship fold because she doesn’t want anyone happy,” Gunvalson balked, adding:
“Miserable people like miserable people. I was there.”
That’s when Tamra opted to light the fuse on the dynamite and secure her contract with the show for another season.
“She said that Steve is only with you for your money,” she said while acting like it was not going to cause another war between the housewives.
“I thought it appropriate to tell Vicki about what’s being said because the worst thing in this group is a rumor going to another person, another person, another person and not the person who’s directly involved,” Tamra said in defense of her actions.
“Of course Kelly says that!” Gunvalson screamed as she stopping chopping vegetables.
“Shame on her for talking about my relationship. It’s bulls— that everybody’s always after what I have! Leave me alone! And by the way, I don’t have that much money.”
For what it’s worth, we did get to see Kelly and Tamra have that conversation earlier in the episode.
“Do you think that guy is hitting it and quitting it?” Kelly asked, of Steve to Tamra.
“My friend was dating the girl that Steve was dating. He told the girlfriend that he’s only using Vicki for money. Swear to God. Dinero! Money talks and bulls— walks.”
“In my book, Steve’s a bad guy,” she added. “He’s hiding something. And everyone should know what kind of a person he is.”
While Tamra was trying to imply she was being nice to Vicki by telling her about the earlier comments, there was also footage that suggested she, too, was not taken in by Steve.
“She doesn’t love him,” Judge said during a group dinner sans Gunvalson. “I’m sorry, she does not love that man.”
Never one to come to a party without some proof, she reminded the ladies of Shannon’s matchmaker.
“When I was talking with the matchmaker with her, she was like ‘Maybe I should go to him too?’” Judge recalled.
While everyone seemed to be against Gunvalson’s relationship, it was all playing out swimmingly for the cameras.
“You better not let me down,” she told Lodge as they celebrated her birthday.
“I feel great at 56. It’s been a bumpy couple last three years, but now that Steve’s in my life, I finally feel like I’m at peace.”
“I don’t need a man for money, and he doesn’t need me for money,” she continued. “I don’t care about stuff. I care about the person.“
“I would date a trash collector if that’s who I fell in love with.”
Lodge seemed to agree. “I think in her mind she feels, ‘I’m successful I don’t need another man’s money, so I’m going to fall in love not because he has money,’ ” he said. “Unlike some other people we know.”
That last little bit of word salad was very likely a jab at Kelly.
Oh yes, it’s on.

The Real Housewives of Orange County continues Monday on Bravo.
Michael Cohen, who worked for two decades as Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, reached a plea deal today with federal prosecutors in court.
In doing so, the man who has often been referred to as the President’s “fixer” implicated the Commander-in-Chief in two major crimes.
Cohen is now on record as saying “in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office” he acted to keep information that would have been harmful to the candidate and the campaign from becoming public during the 2016 election cycle.
Cohen has flipped on his long-time client.
The “candidate” referenced above is very obviously Trump (no one is arguing against this) and the coordinated effort about which Cohen is talking has to do with payments made on Trump’s behalf to a pair of women:
1. Karen McDougal.
2. Stormy Daniels.
Trump allegedly carried on affairs with both of these women and, with Cohen’s assistance, arranged for each to be paid off in order to keep them quiet about the sexual intercourse.
Under regular circumstances, this might not be illegal.
A woman is allowed to sign a contract in which she agrees not to disclose details about nearly anything in exchange for a sum of money.
HOWEVER, Cohen says he was instructed by Trump to make these payments specifically so that news of his affairs would not affect the Presidential election.
The deals were made with the explicit cause of influencing the minds of votes and THAT is what makes them potentially against the law.
“I participated in the conduct for the purposes of influencing the election,” Cohen said about his payments to porn star Daniels and ex-Playboy model McDougal.
Yes, he said this in court.
Yes, it’s safe to assume he will testify to this same charge if he must do so again.
And, yes, it’s possible Cohen has tapes of Trump making various admission and issuing certain directives, since one exchange between the attorney and his former client has already been made public.
It depicts Cohen and Trump discussing the payment that will be made to McDougal.
You can listen to it here:
Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts during his day in court on Tuesday.
The charges against Cohen include:
Tax fraud, false statements to a bank and campaign finance violations tied to his work for Trump… including payments Cohen made or helped orchestrate that were designed to silence women who claimed affairs with the then-candidate.
Regarding the charge linked to Daniels, Cohen said the money “was later repaid to me by the candidate.”
Trump, of course, has denied having knowledge that Cohen paid anyone off on his behalf and has certainly denied ever paying him back.
Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, didn’t shy away from directly calling out the president this afternoon.
“If those payments were a crime for Michael Cohen, then why wouldn’t they be a crime for Donald Trump?” he asked in a statement.
That’s a fair question.
Elsewhere this afternoon, Paul Manafort – President Trump’s former campaign chairman, pictured below – was found guilty on eight counts of financial crimes by a federal jury in Virginia.
This verdict came about as a result of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Manafort faces a maximum of 80 years in jail after being found guilty on five tax fraud counts, two counts of bank fraud and one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts.
For the record now, Trump’s former national security advisor, lawyer and deputy campaign manager have all pleaded guilty to various federal crimes.
His former campaign manager has been convicted of eight felonies.
Can you imagine all that Mueller and his team would uncover if this weren’t a Rigged Witch Hunt?!?
Well, this is quite disturbing.
We never thought we'd write that about a video that features a priest and a baptism… but here we are.
Footage of a priest slapping – yes, SLAPPING – a crying baby during a baptism has made its way around the Internet, sparking the sort of outrage you'd expect when, it bears repeating…
… there's footage of a PRIEST SLAPPING A CRYING BABY.
The YouTube video was initially shared on Reddit with a caption that reads what we just wrote: “A priest slaps an infant during his baptism.”
On Reddit, the user wrote: “this happened today in France, I’m really shocked.”
Who would not be?!?
In the 43-second video that we've shared above, the unnamed priest is shown holding the child’s tear-filled face as the boy sits in a woman’s arms.
We assume this woman is a loved one.
The priest looks like he's trying to comfort the young kid… until, in the middle of the video, the man of God is shown slapping the child across his cheek.
There's certainly no other way to interpret what we're seeing here.
The boy's parents react to this violent act with stunned expressions, as their son starts to scream even more.
We then see the priest pulling the child closer as a woman, who appears to be a church official, briefly approaches him.
"I saw this video on Facebook and I cried," wrote one Twitter user in response, adding:
"I was filled with anger and sadness. If I was the mother of that baby I wouldn’t hesitate to push or slapped the damn priest back!! I don’t care what he is!!"
At one point, the infant struggles in the priest’s arms, prompting a man nearby to forcibly remove the kid from the priest’s arms.
It's just weird and wild and disturbing stuff all around.
"This child will be traumatized by [priests] now," wrote another grossed-out social media user.
“This is so scary and sickening, that baby knew that’s the devil in disguise,” another added. “That’s no priest.”
Watch the controversial footage above.

While even Kanye is calling out Tristan Thompson for his cheating scandal, Khloe has been doing her best to ignore it.
Unfortunately, one of Tristan’s “ex” side chicks apparently sent him a message. Recently.
And Khloe was absolutely enraged.
If you pretend like your relationship problems never happened, they just go away and never come back … right?
That seems to be Khloe’s response to Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal, at any rate.
HollywoodLife reports that Lani Blair texted Tristan, sending Khloe into a rage.
“Khloe became furious when she found out that Lani had reached out to Tristan with a simple text message wishing him good luck in the finals.”
Tristan, like so many of the men in Khloe’s disastrous romantic entanglements, is a professional athlete. He plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“Khloe and Tristan have been working on their trust issues.”
Yep. Khloe apparently believes that the man who cheated on her with multiple women while she was pregnant can be redeemed.
“So he thought it would be best to let her know that Lani had hit him up and that he did not respond.”
That sounds very honest of him.
Apparently, it didn’t go so well.
“Khloe has little trust in Tristan.”
That is very understandable and, quite frankly, a relief to fans who worried that Khloe had lost her mind.
“So knowing that Lani continues to text him was a real punch in the gut.”
Knowing that your baby daddy used to slip it to a model and bartender on the side while you were cultivating his child in your womb is one thing.
Hearing that she had the audacity to send him a text message … that’s something else.
It’s hard to be in denial about cheating when the guy is still getting messages from his mistress.
Apparently, the whole incident left Khloe feeling rattled and confused.
“Khloe believed Tristan when he promised he would be loyal and faithful after getting caught cheating.”
We have no idea how he convinced her, since he wasn’t the first time.
“But now she doesn’t know what to think.”
We’d point out that Tristan was honest in this story. That should count for something.
But it sounds like Khloe just hated to be reminded of something that she’d rather forget.
“She is shocked Lani is still lingering and can’t wait for the season to be over.”
This season of Tristan’s sport, which is basketball.
We can’t confirm that any of that took place, but the report is intriguing.
But Lani is definitely still out there, and her pics are still getting hate from Khloe fans.
One commented on Instagram.
“You really think people are about to mind their own business while you out in public with a NBA player who’s dating a Kardashian?! You’re a stripper you should be used to people being all up in your business and then some.”
That commenter then accuses Lani of being a homewrecker, which has always been a stupid term. Except for, like, arsonists.
Lani clapped back, hard.
“First of all I️m not a stripper. I️’m a bartender.”
“Second you are another one writing me essays about s–t you know nothing about. If you were busy taking care of yourself you wouldn’t have time to be writing me and reading my comments waiting to pounce.”
That sounds reasonable.
“I’d never fix my fingers to write about anyone else’s life. You should reflect on this very low point in your life.”
The affair between Tristan Thompson and Lani Blair was wrong, but the report about Khloe’s reaction to the call makes it sound like Khloe is blaming Tristan’s side pieces for his actions.
Tristan is a grown man.
And we can only guess at what he may have told Lani, but her clapback seems to hint that Tristan may have told her things — true or false — about his relationship with Khloe.
It’s shameful that so many in society are willing to blame “the other woman” instead of the cheater.
It sounds like Khloe has a lot of processing to do. We hope that spending time with her family, who love and support her, will help her to do that.
Jax Taylor has had a rough year.
Granted, many of his problems are self-created, such as the drama that ensued when he was caught cheating on Brittany Cartwright.
But Taylor has also encountered some misfortunes that were not of his own doing.
In December, for example, Jax’s father died following a long battle with cancer.
Though the Vanderpump Rules star and his co-stars have had their share of ups and downs over the years, Jax’s friends, former friends, and even ex-girlfriends rallied around him in his time of need.
In fact, the entire Vanderpump cast was in attendance at one or both of the two memorial events held in the elder Taylor’s honor … with one notable exception.
Yes, Scheana Marie not only failed to attend either funeral, according to Jax she couldn’t even be bothered to offer her condolences.
Granted, Scheana had a lot on her plate what with her fixation on Rob Valletta’s ability to mount a flatscreen on the wall in seven minutes flat, but she still could’ve taken ten seconds to fire off a text.
Of course, it’s a classic he said, she said situation, with Jax claiming he never heard from Scheana, and Scheana insisting that she texted him as soon as she heard the news.
We may never know for sure who’s telling the truth (smart money is on Scheana, obvi), but the situation made for some major fireworks during the first part of this season’s Vanderpump reunion show.
It all started when Jax aptly pointed out that it was sort of messed up of Scheana to try and set Brittany up on dates
(Encourage your friend to dump her problematic boyfriend all you want, but don’t getting third parties involved in an already messed-up situation.)
It didn’t take long for Jax to leap from one sore subject to another,
“You didn’t even call me when my father died,” he shouted.
Scheana became visibly upset, but as we learned earlier this season, once Jax loses his cool, it’s not easy to reign him in.
“F-ck you! You can’t even keep a boyfriend for more than five minutes,” he screamed, causing Scheana to run off stage.
Of course, Scheana’s absence didn’t bring an end to Jax’s tirade:
“Once in a while be a human being and don’t be an ‘I’m on a TV show all the time.’” he went on.
“Maybe that’s why half of her relationships have gone down the sh—ter.”
We can’t help but think there’s more going on between these two than social faux pas from six months ago.
Watch Vanderpump Rules online for more pasta-fueled insanity.
