Jeremy Roloff: Forget Politicians, Only Jesus Can Save You!

Jeremy Roloff does not want to get political

Really, he doesn’t.

But the ex-Little People, Big World star felt a need to speak up this week on Election Day.

With millions and millions of people heading out to their voting locations this past Tuesday, Jeremy took to Instagram and actually discouraged followers from choosing between politicians.

Okay, that’s not entirely true.

But Jeremy definitely did not pull a Taylor Swift and endorse any candidates.

Nor was he one of the many, MANY people who shared their “I Voted” sticker on his social media account.

Instead, Roloff touted the help of his Lord and Savior and suggested that people turn to religion instead of politics if they really want to make a change in their lives.

“The political climate in America is suffocating, no one can deny that,” wrote Jeremy to open his semi-controversial message on November 6, adding by way of reassurance:

“And don’t worry, this isn’t a “political post.” But since it’s vote day, I thought I’d at least acknowledge the chaos.”

It’s more commonly referred to as Election Day, but we’re sorry. Go on, Jeremy…

“As we turn in our ballots today, remember, politics are not our savior, Jesus is,” he wrote, expounding as follows:

“No matter the political lean of your fellow American, treat them with respect. Don’t let your political passion outweigh your human decency.”

Jeremy and his wife, Audrey, have always been very open about their faith and their religion, of course.

The latter recently explained to fans all the lessons that God has taught her over the years.

Along similar lines, this is how Jeremy concluded his Election Day pist:

The tides of cultural morality are just that – tides. But we have a unwavering rock to stand on – the Word of God.

I’m not saying that the answer to measure 101 can be found in Habakkuk; what I’m saying is that we are carrying the name of Christ and His word has a lot to say about how we should conduct ourselves.

We cary His name, so let’s act like it.

Vote, research, stand up for what aches you, but don’t do it at the expense of the real cure – discipleship to Jesus.

It’s an interesting take.

We’re not sure if dedicating one’s life to the teachings of Jesus Christ means you can’t also be politically active, but we at least understand where Jeremy is coming from.

The former TLC star, sadly, will not be returning to Little People, Big World next season.

But he and Audrey have found new forums in which they can express views such as these.

Look for their memoir to be released in early 2019 and for their podcast to even hit your ear buds in the near future.

Khloe Kardashian: I Will NEVER Forget What Tristan Thompson Did!

So hey, how about last night’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, huh?

Or, if you didn’t catch it, how about Tristan Thompson and his gross, inconsiderate ways?

Yep, last night was the big night.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians finally got to the part where everyone discovered that Tristan had cheated on Khloe.

It was honestly kind of intense, even though everything happened several months ago and we know how it all turned out.

Kourtney called Tristan’s actions “disgusting,” and Kendall said that he was an “idiot.”

Meanwhile, Khloe herself took the news pretty well, especially considering that she was just days away from giving birth.

As she explained it, she didn’t want to really think about it all or make a big decision about whether or not she’d stay with him.

“I just want to go and give birth and try to enjoy this,” she said.

She also said that she still wanted him to be in the delivery room with her, and that she didn’t want any of her family members to “make him uncomfortable and make me uncomfortable.”

But even though that was her stance, and even though she’s still with him, that doesn’t mean things are fine.

She made that perfectly clear in a series of tweets she shared last night.

To kick things off, she wrote that “Tonight’s episode is an uncomfortable and super emotional one for me.”

“But when we signed up for this show over a decade ago, we signed up for a reality show, which meant showing you guys inside our lives, the good, the bad and the ugly.”

Poor Khloe then admitted that “to relive these moments all over again is incredibly difficult,” but that “I also hope that with every trial, tribulation and curve ball life throws at us, that we ALL get to learn from our journeys.”

“Amidst the tough times,” she added, “I have been blessed with the ultimate gift, my sweet baby True who has changed my life in ways I never could have imagined.”

And for a bit of advice, she told her followers to “remember that you are never alone in your pain, and that everything is temporary.”

“Pain, joy, elation, panic, anxiety, it is all temporary. Be grateful for the experiences that continue to build character, and make you who you are.”

So it’s clear that the whole mess with Tristan affected her very deeply, right?

After all of that, a follower told her that no one would be mad if she just skipped the episode altogether.

“I will see how much I can handle,” she replied. “This goes for tonight AND next week.”

So there’s more heartbreak next week … ugh.

Later, Khloe tweeted about how much she loves doing the show and how she’s “proud that we are all strong and brave enough to be vulnerable.”

“BUT we have to start airing shows closer to real time,” she complained.

“This episode is about 7 months old and it’s a lot to relive all over again. But maybe I need to.”

She discussed some other things from the episode too, but of course she could never get too far from all the drama.

At one point, she wrote “Oh my God my heart is racing! So crazy how emotions never die! You may forgive but forgetting is not possible.”

You hear that, Tristan?

Then, to wrap up her discussion on the episode, she took some time to explain exactly why she didn’t react too strongly to the news of Tristan’s unfaithfulness.

Spoiler: it was all for True.

“I wanted to have a beautiful birthing experience for myself and for the memories of what I choose to share with True when she’s older,” she said.

“I want her to have videos and pictures of her daddy there, holding her etc. I want her to know she is LOVE and my happiness!”

“Babies feel energy!” she continued. “I know this! I chose to put my feelings aside for the birth and to try and have as much positive energy that I could.”

“My only thought was about the birth of my daughter. I wasn’t going to let ANYONE disrupt anything less than what she deserved. Joyous love.”

She wrote that she chose to be strong for her baby, especially since “I waited for this day for so many years!”

Looking back on everything now, Khloe realized that she was “in shock because I couldn’t believe that this would ever happen to me.”

However, she’s still proud of herself for being so strong and doing what she felt was best for her daughter.

“True gave me the peace and strength I needed,” she concluded.

It’s so sweet that she felt so strongly about having a positive birth for True, isn’t it?

It’s also so sad that she had to make that decision because Tristan couldn’t keep himself from stepping out on his pregnant girlfriend.

But let’s try to focus on the very few positive points of this awful story.

The very, very few positive points.

Next week’s episode sure is going to be rough.

David Eason: Forget About the Jenelle Evans Assault, Look How Trashy I Am!

It’s been a little over a week now since we first heard reports that Jenelle Evans was assaulted by her husband, David Eason.

And it’s still just really, truly awful.

From what we’ve been able to piece together from her heartbreaking 911 call and some statements she’s made, she and David were hanging out by a bonfire outside their home the weekend before last.

They were drinking, and apparently something happened to set David off.

According to Jenelle’s conversation with the 911 operator, he pinned her down out in the yard, “and I think I heard my f-cking collarbone crack.”

Even if he didn’t break her collarbone, it seems like he may have caused some sort of injury.

Ever since that incident, Jenelle’s been careful to cover up her neck and chest.

Still, it’s pretty clear she’s not leaving him, at least not any time soon.

After that call was released, she said that this whole thing has been a “misunderstanding,” and that they’d just gotten too drunk.

So drunk, apparently, that she tripped and fell into David, and that made both of them think they were fighting.

Yeah, it doesn’t make sense, but that’s her story and she’s sticking to it

She’s actually sticking to it so hard that she made an entire video in which she talked about how crazy it is that people think David could be abusive.

Honestly, this whole saga has been so scary and depressing, you know?

And David just made things even scarier with this bizarre photo he shared this morning on Instagram:

Yep, this guy is as creepy as ever, all wrapped up in a Confederate flag out in that sketchy shed in their yard.

In the caption for this photo, David wrote “Where I’m from is who I am and my family fought and died for this land.”

“Red white and blue comes in more than one pattern.”

He also urged his followers not to argue, “just get off my page if you don’t agree!”

There are lots of problems with this, right?

Just so many problems.

One, his family didn’t fight and die for “this land.”

Jenelle bought the land with Teen Mom money, and David just tagged along and rakes the yard sometimes.

Two, he’s trying to rock a Confederate flag here, which was from the Civil War — which most of us know really wasn’t a “fight and die for this land” kind of war.

It was more like a “fight and die for the right to own slaves” war, but he’s clearly trying to romanticize things, so whatever.

Three, if you really want to rep “red white and blue,” why have a flag for a group of treasonous people who didn’t even want to be a part of the U.S.?

Four, this photo is so cringy that we might literally die from it.

And in only got worse with the replies David made to his followers’ comments.

One person told him “Pretty sure your ‘land’ was stolen from the true Native Americans,” which is obviously a solid point.

However, David responded with “I bought my land with cash money,” so it seems like that point flew right over his head.

Also, again, it was definitely Jenelle’s money.

Then someone said that he seemed “mentally ill.”

“But ‘mentally ill’ is considered normal by the media and Democrats,” he replied.

Just … what?

After that, one person said that she wasn’t from the U.S. and didn’t really understand the problem with the flag.

That’s when things really got wild.

“There is no problem,” David wrote, “people who think its a racist flag are racist themselves.”

“It’s their way to pass the buck so they don’t seem so racist.”

What does that even mean?

Seriously, what is that supposed to mean? We don’t get it.

The thing is that while David is by no means the sharpest tool in the sketchy, sketchy shed, he’s not stupid, either.

He knows that this kind of behavior gets a lot of attention, and we’d imagine he wants attention on anything but those abuse allegations right now.

And on one hand, it kind of worked, because we are talking about, right?

But on the other hand … how is one person this terrible?

Josh Duggar Dares to Show His Face Online, Expects Us to Forget the Stuff He Did

We hate to say it and we really hate to see it, but…

… Josh Duggar is back in our lives.

He’s not on television again. And he isn’t actually saying anything.

But whatever.

Any Josh Duggar is too much Josh Duggar, in our educated and totally accurate opinion, at least.

The disgraced ex-reality star, who has admitted to both cheating on his wife AND molesting his sisters, was featured in a photo shared by that same wife, Anna Duggar, on Monday.

As you can see above, Anna used the occasion of Labor Day to shove her husband stupid face back into the lives of her followers, writing as a caption to a family photo:

“Hope you are having a #HappyLaborDay and spending it with ones you love most! We spent some time with family [and] friends at #FarmlandAdventures today!”

This is the second time in just a few weeks that Anna has posted a photo that include Josh.

Back in early July, the ex-TLC personality actually gushed over Josh in a caption to the photo immediately above.

“June was an exciting month for our family,” Anna wrote, explaining why as follows:

“Marcus, Michael and I are are officially a year older + Josh and I celebrated our 10 year engagement anniversary!”

She then singled out Josh in particular and added:

The past 10 years have been a wonderful adventure. So thankful for God’s redeeming grace and His blessings to us along the way, especially our 5 M’s!

Yes, a wonderful adventure.

That certainly is one way to describe what Anna and Josh have gone through.

Their relationship hit a tiny snag back in May of 2015 when it came out that Josh had inappropriately touched two of his siblings when he was a teenager.

This was a rather unfathomable scandal at the time, especially by the standards of the Duggars, who think it’s a sin to even look at your girlfriend in shorts before she becomes your wife.

(And even then… it’s probably questionable.)

We later learned that Duggar was also an Ashley Madison client and used the website to find women with whom he could sleep.

None of these women were his wife, in case that wasn’t clear. Josh was outed as a serial cheater and subsequently went to rehab for an alleged sex addiction.

The couple has five kids together and we feel worse and worse for Anna with each passing day.

It’s as if she’s a member of some cult and simply cannot leave it for any reason.

But that’s not what Anna says.

She has credited God and her faith for helping her forgive Josh and move on from these crazy scandals, once saying in a Counting On confessional:

“For my heart, it was like how could this happen in our marriage. Josh was my first love, he’s my one and only.

“My only hope was to cling to my faith because I know if I went off of what I was feeling I would turn a mess into a disaster.

“So in the stun and in the shock of everything, I was praying to God, ‘Help me to know how to respond to all of this.’ I didn’t know what to do.

“I knew we needed help and I was just praying that God would give the help and the wisdom that we needed to take the next step.”

Kim Kardashian: Forget What Kanye Said! Look How Cute My Baby Is!

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Kanye West has been making headlines recently as a result of his social media activity.

Normally, that’s not a bad thing, especially for an artist with new music coming out.

But Kanye has always taken a … let’s say unique approach to public relations, and this time, he may have bitten off more than he can chew.

And by that, we mean, the formerly-beloved rapper basically seems hell-bent on torpedoing his own career.

You know things are bad when stealing the microphone from Taylor Swift as she attempts to accept an award looks like a good guy moment by comparison.

Anyway, it’s impossible to keep up with all of Kanye’s bonkers tweets and controversial comments these days, and it seems unlikely that his career will ever recover from the media frenzy of the past week.

On Tuesday, Kanye hit a new low when he remarked that the centuries of slavery in the United States were the result “a choice” made by blacks of those eras.

Yes, it was really that bad … fortunately, for the sake of his reputation, Kanye married into a family that understands the importance of PR better than the Kennedys and the Clintons combined, hence the well-timed photo above.

Now clearly, Kim doesn’t believe a few well-timed baby pics will make the world forget that Kanye said some profoundly ignorant sh-t just last night.

But she probably figures – rightly, as it happens – that come cute snaps of little Chicago can’t hurt the situation.

Kim even posted some video clips of little Chi, cooing to her youngest daughter, “Are you not the cutest?”

Naturally, fans loved the latest glimpse at Kim and Kanye’s third child, and thankfully, there was relatively little smack talk.

Kim should probably enjoy the moment, because amicable interactions with the public might be few and far between in the weeks to come.

In addition to Kanye’s slavery comments, yesterday saw a revelation about a controversial period in his past.

Back in 2016, Kanye suffered a meltdown that was blamed his reps blamed on exhaustion and stress.

Last week, he revealed the true cause of his hospitalization:

It seems Kanye was addicted to opioids and struggled mightily to kick the habit:

“I think I’m in a stronger place than I ever was after the breakdown, or I like to say the breakthrough,” West told Charlamagne tha God in a candid interview yesterday.

The comment was controversial, as many believe Kanye is currently in the midst of a second breakdown.

Often with West, it can be difficult to tell the difference between media-baiting and genuine emotion.

Whatever the case, here’s hoping Kanye gets help if he needs.

He’s got a beautiful baby girl to look after.

Jeremy Vuolo to Jinger Duggar: Forget About Jim Bob’s Rules! (Exclusive)

It’s been eighteen months since Jinger Duggar married Jeremy Vuolo, and to say a lot has changed in the reality star’s life in that time would be to put it very mildly.

These days, Jinger is pregnant with her first child, and it seems she has every intention of following in her sisters’ footsteps and raising a large family with husband Jeremy Vuolo.

But in many ways, Jinger is living a life that’s very different from those of her siblings, and likely very different from the one her domineering father, Jim Bob Duggar, had envisioned for her.

Much has been made of Jinger’s departures from her family’s stringent code of conduct.

The most obvious way in which the 24-year-old has flouted her father’s rules is by disregarding his famous dress code.

Yes, as you’ve likely heard, Jinger has been wearing pants.

That may not sound like a big deal, but after a spending her entire childhood in mandated below-the-knee skirts, we imagine Jinger got quite a thrill out of slipping on her first pair of Levi’s

Of course, that’s the only way in which Jinger has defied her upbringing and forged her own identity.

Jinger’s parents have reportedly expressed concerns about everything from her decision to relocate to Laredo, Texas to hthe fact that she was married to Vuolo for over a year before she announced her first pregnancy.

(It’s not uncommon for Duggar daughters or women who marry into the family to conceive on their honeymoons.)

A former employee of the Duggars spoke with The Hollywood Gossip exclusively and revealed that Jinger’s husband has encouraged her not to fear her father and to live a life that aligns with her own values, not Jim Bob’s.

“Jinger, she’s off on her own trip, and I’m kind of glad, because she’s been hemmed up so long for many years,” the insider tells us.

“She just needed to spread her wings and realize that God still loves her and there is a life after all that seclusion.”

Not surprisingly, rumors about Jim Bob clashing with Vuolo have been common over the course of the past year, and Vuolo likely knew that he was making a powerful enemy when he encouraged Jinger to break her father’s rules.

But it seems Jeremy realized that Jinger could never be entirely happy living under her Jim Bob’s thumb. 

“When you put someone in a bubble like that and they get out – she went rampant, totally rampant,” says our source.

“Her husband said, ‘This is the way it’s going to be – I’m the boss of this family. You’re not doing anything wrong by wearing pants or showing your arms.'”

The insider tells us that he still gets regular updates about the Vuolos from friends who live in laredo, and he’s pleased to report that Jinger has found happiness in her new life.

“I just worry about some of them kids,” he tells us.

And our source has a prediction about which of Jim Bob’s offspring will be next to rebel against their strict upbringing:

“Josiah’s going to be the next one to bust out,” he says.

We’re sure that’s something that many Duggar fans will eagerly look forward to.
