Ellen DeGeneres Gifts Jimmy Kimmel a Hospital Room Named in His Son’s Honor

There's more to Jimmy Kimmel than interviews with Stormy Daniels or with The Bachelor favorite Bekah Martinez. He's a husband and a father.

He's opened up on his show about his son Billy's serious congenital heart problems that require multiple surgeries.

As you'll see in the sweet video below, Ellen DeGeneres has found a beautiful and meaningful way to honor his son's health battle.

Jimmy Kimmel and Ellen DeGeneres affirm their friendship.

The two then discuss Jimmy Kimmel's young son's ongoing health battle. He was born with genetic heart disease.

Congenital heart problems can often be serious or even fatal, but Billy has undergone surgeries in an attempt to save his lie.

It's hard on Jimmy Kimmel and his wife. It's harder still on Billy.

When Ellen shares that she's about to spring one of her famous surprises on Jimmy Kimmel, he looks genuinely surprised.

(Here, we see Jimmy Kimmel pinching his hand in an attempt to use acupressure to prevent himself for crying. Ellen tells him that the pressure point is for headaches. He's so goofy)

As it turns out, the wonderful surprise that Ellen has for Jimmy and his family is that she's had a hospital room named after Billy.

It is named in honor of him, not in memory — Billy is alive, folks.

It's a sweet move. Cynical critics might describe it as an "empty gesture," but it's not like Ellen can just magically heal Jimmy's son. This is a sweet thing to do.

And Ellen had another surprise for Jimmy Kimmel — she had some of his son's nurses from the hospital in the audience.

Jimmy Kimmel has brought his son onto the stage with him as he continues to share Billy's health battle with audiences.

His candid sharing of that part of his life has made him one of the most vocal supporters of health care reform.

Many point to his moving, tearful monologues when they talk about the need for universal health care — that no one and especially no child should be condemned to die because they aren't rich.

Jimmy Kimmel of course, is rich enough to afford his son's treatments.

Any other family would have to try crowdsourcing or bankruptcy in an effort to save their baby's life.

Jimmy kimmel fights back tears

During his interview with Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel opens up about how emotional he gets.

As we mention, he shares that he sometimes pinches an acupressure point on his hand as an effort to hold back tears.

Ellen corrects him — acupressure points can sometimes have multiple purposes, but the point that he pinches to no avail is supposed to help with headache relief.

So, you know, no wonder that doesn't work for him.

Also, his teary eyes are a refreshing dose of emotional honesty in a society that tries to tell men that they're not supposed to cry.

As you can see in the video below, both Jimmy and Ellen are delights.

But you probably already knew that.

(Of course, people who think that Ellen DeGeneres is part of the "deep state" that the US doesn't have in the first place probably think that Jimmy's part of the same nonexistent organization)

Watch this sweet video — and hear Jimmy Kimmel's anecdote of crying at someone else's wedding when he worked as a DJ.

Kim Zolciak Gifts Brielle Biermann a Gun for Her 21st Birthday

Recently, Brielle Biermann dismissed plastic surgery rumors — she says that her body’s transformation is just the result of puberty.

It’s a reminder that she’s grown up before viewers’ eyes. In fact, over the weekend, she turned 21 and partied to celebrate.

Kim Zolciak presented her daughter with a present that’s causing quite a stir — a gun.

Brielle Biermann celebrated turning 21 — and it’s good that she did.

After 21, birthdays aren’t really the same. At 18 you can vote and become a sex worker. At 21, you can drink.

The milestones of being able to rent a car at 25 or run for President at 35 aren’t usually quite so exciting. And they’re accompanied by the dreadful sense of one’s own mortality as your flesh prison begins to slowly fail.

At 21, though, there’s still plenty of reason to party.

And that’s just what Brielle did — partying away in Miami.

When Brielle returned home, however — you know, to her also-famous family — she was presented with gifts. Birthday presents.

She received some art that appeared to be framed and sculptured molds of topless women.

TMZ reports that these pieces of art would have set Kim Zolciak back $ 5,550 each.

(Leaving some fans to speculate that Kim or Brielle may have posed for the molds, but that’s pure speculation, folks)

The controversial gift was much cheaper at not much over $ 1,000.

It was a gun.

Brielle Biermann Gun

The handgun with a rose gold top was a gift to Brielle.

(Apparently the potentially deadly present came from Kroy Biermann, specifically)

While a handgun wouldn’t really be characterized as an “assault rifle” and doesn’t realistically equip someone to destroy as many lives in such a short time as a preferred tool of terrorists such as the AR-15, it’s still a gun.

Brielle was very clearly taken aback by the gift.

She asked what it was for, and admitted to being frightened by the idea of owning it, saying: “I’m scared.”

Apparently, Kim and Kroy just felt that Brielle should have a gun since she’s an adult and no longer living at home.

The question of whether the gift was tasteful was obvious.

It hasn’t even been two weeks since the devastating school shooting in Florida in which a deranged former student, believed to now be a Trump-supporting white supremacist based upon his social media posts, opened fire at a school, claiming 17 lives and traumatizing hundreds.

The tragedy is one on a national scale.

So … was this gift in terrible taste?

Some, of course, believe that a gun is never an appropriate gift.

Others point out that a handgun seems more viable as a self-defense tool.

And others point out that Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann almost certainly got this gun long before the Florida shooting, and that their only real mistake was the tone-deaf decision to broadcast Brielle’s gift to the world.

Of course, others have tried to argue that Kim and Kroy live in Georgia and therefore don’t know any better. (Absurd)

The Zolciak-Biermann clan is not the only reality family to weigh in on guns.

Kim Kardashian called for gun control in the wake of the terrible Florida shooting that took 17 innocent lives.

Since then, courageous students who survived that awful day have become lightning rods for the push for gun control, and every voiced added to theirs is helpful.

In the meantime, just hours after the horrific shooting, Jenelle Evans was slammed for an insensitive gun tweet as she showed herself firing a weapon of war.

And of course her husband, David Eason’s series of pro-gun posts later devolved into a horrifying homophobic rant that got him promptly fired.

it’s not clear if Kim and Kroy were trying to make a political statement. They may have just been pumping out social media content in order to stay relevant. Like always.


Kanye West Gifts Kim Kardashian Stocks, Gift Cards, & So Much More!

Kanye West is intent on helping Kim Kardashian take over the world. 

Kanye was once one of the most controversial rappers around, but he’s been keeping a low profile these days.

He and Kim are gearing up to welcome their third child into the world, so we can imagine how busy they must be. 

We’re still shocked that Kanye appeared on some of the family’s Christmas cards because his public appearances have been scarce ever since he took a breakdown in 2016. 

That said, we do believe he was only drafted in at the last second to give the media something to talk about in light of the lack Kylie Jenner on the cards. 

Maybe this is yet another calculated plan from the business-oriented mind of Kris Jenner to keep the family being talked about. 

Now, we already knew that Kanye liked to gift his wife with some of the best things around, but he may well have gone a little too far this Christmas. 

As usual, Kim took to Instagram to show off all of her gifts and brag about how great her husband is because he went above and beyond to help her take over the world. 

In the first clip, Kim revealed a small brown box that was filled with stocking fillers like gift cards for Amazon and Netflix, Apple headphones, Adidas socks and even a Mickey Mouse doll. 

“I’m like, ‘That’s so sweet, thanks!’” Kim says as she shows off the gifts. 

Now, you may be thinking that it’s a well-thought-out gift, but Kanye took his kindness to a whole new level when Kim revealed there was a second box. 

That box was filled with certificates confirming Kanye had bought Kim stocks in all of the companies he bought her the gifts from. 

“Best husband alert!” Kim wrote in the clip. 

Yes, there really is no expense spared when it comes to Kanye West giving the gift of power to his loved ones. 

Despite rumor after rumor that the couple is headed for divorce, it appears they are still very close. Why would you spend THAT much on someone who may be about to tell you to pack your bags and get out of the house?

What do you think of the gifts?

Was it too much, or just about right for the likes of Kim Kardashian?

Sound off below!


Joseph Duggar & Kendra Caldwell: Slammed For Seeking Wedding Gifts From Fans!

If you watch Counting On online, you know that the Duggar family is in the midst of what folks in the business world call aggressive expansion.

It’s a full-blown flurry of births, pregnancies, and weddings, and things are progressing so rapidly that the big events are starting to overlap.

In fact, Joy-Anna Duggar’s recent wedding was the scene of a major milestone for one of her siblings:

Joseph Duggar proposed to Kendra Caldwell during the reception and, as is customary for members of the Duggar clan, only a few months will pass between the proposal and the exchange of vows.

Last week, we learned the date of Joseph and Kendra’s wedding, and to the surprise of no one, it’s coming right up.

The couple will say “I do” on October 7, in Rogers, Arkansas.

It’s unsual for Duggar couples to be so forward about the date and location of their nuptials, but Joseph and Kendra might have ulterior motives for sharing their 

Several members of the Duggar family, including Joy-Anna, have taken to social media to confirm the date of the wedding.

Presumably, Joseph and Kendra would’ve posted the news, too, were it not for the fact that the Duggars frown on the idea of their children posting on social media prior to marriage.

So what’s wrong with sharing wedding details online?

Well, nothing, per se.

The problem in this case, is that Joy-Anna and others also decided to share the couple’s wedding registry online, and to many fans, the move seems like a desperate cash grab.

There’s nothing unusual about the items on Joseph and Kendra’s registry.

It’s mostly common household items and gift certificate to chain restaurants.

The problem is that posting the wish list publicly seems like away to solicit gifts from fans.

Not surprisingly, some fans expressed their disapproval on Joy-Anna’s Instagram page:

“Very, very uncool. There are ways to circulate this info to the guests. This a gift solicitation for the FANS,” wrote one follower.

“Why would complete strangers who aren’t even invited to the wedding purchase wedding gifts for them?” commented another.

Some were so surprised by the move that they assumed Joy-Anna had been hacked:

“Were you hacked, cause this would be a great scam for someone trying to take advantage of the couple and get their gifts. Also, if not hacked, still a scam. Maybe ask people to donate to a charity in honor of your wedding? Ridiculous,” wrote one fan.

The post hasn’t been deleted, so a hack seems unlikely.

This isn’t the first time that a controversy has erupted aroung the Duggars asking for money from fans, and as in previous cases, the family seems unapologetic in their desire for more stuff.

But hey, we’re sure they can point to a Bible verse that they’ve interpreted as a paraphrasing of Michael Douglas’ “greed is good” speech from Wall Street
