Mohamed Hadid Isn’t Happy Trump Recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital

Mohamed Hadid isn’t happy about President Trump’s decision to recognize a new capital in Israel … and he’s hoping violence won’t be an outcome. We got Bella and Gigi Hadid’s dad — who’s Palestinian himself — shortly after Trump announced the…


Kate Gosselin Can’t Even Wish Happy Birthday to Her Kids Without Getting Slammed

Look, we don’t especially like Kate Gosselin.

She has a really bad temper. She can be very petty and immature. And she often exploits her children for attention, fame and money.

But still. This doesn’t mean Gosselin deserves flak for absolutely everything she does and says.

Just consider what happened earlier this week:

Twin daughters Mady and Cara turned 17 years old.

In response, Gosselin shared a throwback photo of the kids and wrote along with it a pretty sweet and loving caption.

“….And then you blink, and they TURN SEVENTEEN!! Happy birthday to my girls!” wrote the Kate Plus 8 star, adding:

“My heart hurts because you’re almost adults and will soon leave for college, yet it smiles because I am seeing who you’ve become: brilliant, beautiful, kind, caring, logical, responsible, empathetic, honest, amazing individuals!

“I love you both SO VERY MUCH! Let’s have a wonderful day together celebrating YOU!”

Mady and Cara are four years older than Gosselin’s sextuplets, Aaden, Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Collin and Joel.

They really have grown up right before the eyes of anyone who has followed the career of Gosselin and her ex-husband ever since they co-starred on Jon and Kate Plus 8.

So… that’s that, right? Case closed?

Gosselin simply wished her kids a happy birthday and now the Internet can move on with its life?

HA! You’ve clearly never met the Internet.

A multitude of critics jumped online to use this birthday message as an opportunity to throw shade at Gosselin.

For instance:

kate hate

The question about Collin is a reference to a scandal from July in which Kate celebrated the birthdays of her other kids… without including son Collin.

Where was he? Why wasn’t he invited to his own birthday party?

It’s mostly unclear. Many reports have indicated that Collin has some kind of learning disability and is off receiving therapy somewhere.

But neither Kate nor Jon have been very candid about what is transpiring here.

Meanwhile, along with disdain for Kate, there was actual hatred for Mady and Cara online as well.

“I’m sure they are as snarky and eye rolly as ever, one person wrote, while another took it to a whole other level:

mady hate

Jeepers, Internet users!

These are 17-year old girls you’re destroying here!

Again, it’s worth repeating: we pretty much hate Kate Gosselin.

We can think of MANY reasons to make A LOT of fun of her.

But sending her twins a bit of birthday love simply isn’t among them. And it certainly doesn’t warrant these types of replies.

Leave the kids alone and wait for a more appropriate reason to tear Gosselin a new one.

We’re sure she’ll provide you with one any day now.


Ansel Elgort: I’m Happy for Carmelo Anthony, ‘Didn’t Belong On Knicks Anymore’

Did you know … “Baby Driver” star Ansel Elgort is a DIE-HARD Knicks fan? It’s true — and when we saw the actor out in NYC on Wednesday he sounded off about losing Carmelo Anthony.  “I’m happy for Carmelo, he didn’t belong on the Knicks…


Tori Roloff to Amy and Molly Roloff: Happy Shared Birthday!

Little People, Big World star Amy Roloff might seem distant from Jeremy and Audrey’s newborn, baby Ember Jean, these days.

She’s definitely in the thoughts of her other daughter-in-law, Tori Roloff, however. And so is Molly Roloff, Tori’s sister-in-law.

As you may remember, Amy and Molly share a birthday.

We don’t know everything that’s going on in their family right now, but Tori seems to be on good terms with everybody, because she offered up birthday wishes with zero awkwardness.

Like we said, we don’t know what’s up with Amy Roloff, her son Jeremy, or her daughter-in-law Audrey.

It might be nothing.

But while Amy Roloff is a proud grandmother to Jackson, her grandson — Tori’s baby — we haven’t actually seen her in any photos with her second grandchild.

After Ember Jean was born, Amy Roloff got slammed by haters for posting an Instagram ad instead of a photo with her newborn.

To be clear, Amy has absolutely posted about Ember’s birth:

“And my baby granddaughter is here. I’m so so excited and happy for Jeremy and Audrey. I’m a grandma again. Ember Jean is beautiful. What a blessing. My heart is full of joy!!”

But no pictures.

This has led some fans to wonder if Amy has met her granddaughter.

Like Audrey, Tori Roloff married into the Roloff family.

But Tori, at least, seems to have a very close bond with Amy.

Tori posted the above photo to her Instagram story as a tribute to Amy’s birthday – and she posted a matching shout-out to her sister-in-law, Molly, which we have for you below.

Tori gave birth to Amy’s first grandchild, a beautiful baby boy named Jackson.

There are tons of photos of Amy Roloff spending “grandma time” with Jackson.

She delights in spending time with her grandson, and clearly has a healthy bond with her daughter-in-law, Tori.

Tori also has a close, sisterly bond with her sister-in-law, Molly Roloff.

“Seester” is such a cute thing for people to call each other!

Actual siblings use it, in-laws use it, and sometimes just very close friends use the variant of “sister” as an affectionate label for each other for for their “seesterly” bond.

We can’t imagine that it’s easy for anyone when a mother and her daughter share a birthday.

Two presents to get (at least!). Two cards. Possibly two parties.

It was cute that Tori came up with matching birthday shoutouts for both of her in-laws.

We know that we talked about possibilities that Amy has some sort of “issues” with Jeremy or Audrey or both, or vice-versa.

But … let’s please keep an open mind rather than jumping to conclusions.

It’s absurd to suggest that Amy must be a heartless grandmother who only loves her grandson.

(Yes, some commenters have really assumed as much)

Instead, let’s think of something a little less interesting but also a lot more plausible:

Maybe Jeremy and Audrey are just trying to limit the number of photos of Ember Jean so early after her birth.

It could be something with Ember’s coloring not clearing up yet (sometimes babies even have a kind of acne!).

Or it could just be that they’re waiting for the right moment to spam us with a bunch of cute close-up photos.

Whatever the case, let’s not assume that there’s some sort of silent fight going on behind the scenes of Little People, Big World.

If there is … we’ll know sooner or later.


Ariel Winter to Levi Meaden: Happy Birthday! Here’s a Butt!

If you follow Ariel Winter on Instagram, you may feel that you know the actress pretty well.

After all, whether it’s bikini pics, or outrage over tabloid rumors, Ariel isn’t shy about sharing.

But something that doesn’t always come across in her posts is her irreverent sense of humor – a quality she clearly shares in common with her boyfriend, Levi Meaden.

Meaden celebrated his thirtieth birthday over the weekend, which kicked off a new round of fretting and pearl-clutching over Ariel and Levi’s age difference.

But the couple didn’t seem bothered by the deluge of concern-trolling.

In fact, they seemed more in love than ever over the course of a weekend that included a birthday blowout and a stop by the 2017 Emmy Awards.

(It’s easy to forget, since she’s more famous for her social media presence than her acting these days, but Ariel is still on Modern Family, soon to begin 479th season on ABC.)

Ariel didn’t leave the ceremony with any new hardware for her mantel, but the girl definitelty deserves Hostess of the Year honors for throwing a birthday party that made the Emmys look like a snooze-fest in comparison.

And how did she accomplish that?

With a whole lot of latex and one seriously suggestuve cake.

(Not trotting out Sean Spicer for a gag about all those times he tried to swindle the American people and undermine the foundations of our democracy probably helped, too. Take note, Emmy producers.)

First the dress.

Latex is apparently Ariel’s favorite fabric these days, and we’re certainly not complaining.

If she’s happy to sweat out late summer in LA in a dress made from recycled Trojans, we’re happy to enjoy the view.

As for the cake …

Remember what we said about Ariel’s irreverent sense of humor.

Yes, in the fashion of so many Millennials these days, Ariel invited her boyfriend to eat some ass.

She posted the above photo on Snapchat, with a caption reading:

“He likes the cake ;)”

Actually, he looks a little unsure about the cake.

But hey, he was probably the only person at the Emmys who could say he’d eaten an ass-shaped cake in the past 48 hours.

Don’t try to steal his thunder, Spicer! We’ll know you’re lying!
