Jenelle Evans’ Drug Dealer Introduces Himself to the World

Many reality stars have prompted the question, is this person on drugs?

So in that respect, Jenelle Evans has a lot of company.

But in one important way, the Carolina Hurricane is in a class of her own:

Not only do we know for a fact that she's on drugs, we know her substance abuse is so severe that many who know her best are amazed she's not dead or in prison.

Jenelle has admitted to smoking pot while pregnant; she's been imprisoned for possession on countless occasions; and she's nearly lost her life to overdoses.

Needless to say, Jenelle's drug dealer is one of the most important people in her life, and now, for the first time, we get to meet this elusive figure.

 

1. The Substance Lover

Pills, pot, other drugs normalk people have never even heard of that also start with “p” … you name it,m Jenelle’s done it.

2. Partners In Crime

3. Life on the Land

Jenelle and David live in the middle of freakin’ nowhere, which can create problems for people who enjoy illicit substances.

4. Making It Work

But like all mythical creatures, Jenelle and David’s is seldom seen by mere mortals — which is why it’s so exciting that two locals recently caught a glimpse of the elusive beast …

John David Duggar Introduces the World to Abbie Burnett

Here she is, folks!

Earlier this week, John David Duggar confirmed the very exciting news that he's officially courting Abbie Burnett.

We learned from the couple that Abbie is 26 years old; that shw rosk as a nurse; and that she lives in Oklahoma.

She also comes from her own rather large family (she has at least seven siblings) and that she got to know Duggar well during a church event for which he flew to her native state.

“Abbie and I are just so excited," John Duggar said in his typically reserved fashion while initially publicizing this romance to Us Weekly.

But in the video above, which John David and Abbie recorded for TLC, the burgeoning couple reveals a little more about itself and how they arrived at this point in their relationship.

"We're in a courtship," Abbie says after John David introduces her to viewers, with Duggar trying very hard to smile while explaining that the two "fell in love very quickly."

"It's been a wonderful journey thus far, and we're taking the next step," John David adds.

We can't say he sounds overly psyched about the whole thing while speaking, but it's probably sort of awkward to make these videos for the network.

Abbie, meanwhile, chalks up their courtship to "a lot of prayer, a lot of counsel [and] a lot of time together," not making it sound as if there was any pressure on her and John David to get together at all.

They then conclude this interview by encouraging folks to watch Counting On.

Just how serious is the relationship?

It prompted Anna Duggar to break her social media silence;  and it has already led to the creation of a joint Twitter handle, @johnandabbie.

"God is so good!" John David and Abbie wrote as a caption to the following photo of themselves for their first, and so far only, post.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, meanwhile, are understandably pumped that their 28-year old son has finally found love.

"We are so excited to announce the courtship of John David and Abbie!" they said in a statement on the family's website, adding:

John David brings our hearts so much joy and we've watched him faithfully pray, wait, and trust God for the right girl to come along! Now, a beautiful relationship has blossomed between the two of them.

We can't wait to see what the Lord will do in the future.

Stassi Schroeder Introduces New Boyfriend Beau Clark: He’s Not a Douche!

If you’ve been watching the current season of Vanderpump Rules, you know that former SUR girl and reigning controversy queen Stassi Schroeder is having a tough go of it.

Granted, many of Stassi’s problems are self-created, but it’s still jarring to see the former queen bee take such a tumble from the top of the social ladder.

The past two weeks have been particularly rough for Stassi due to allegations of racism from Ariana Madix and some bizarre photos that refuse to go away.

(Pro tip: Even if dressing in “Nazi chic” is your idea of a good gag, maybe don’t post the pics on social media.)

Like we said, she’s not exactly on top this season, and her situation is made worse by the fact that she’s dating a total douche.

In real life, Patrick Meagher dumped Stassi on what would have been their fourth anniversary (like we said, douche), but when Vanderpump Season 6 was filmed, they were very much still dating. 

Which means we’ve been subjected to levels of mansplaining and cliched bumper sticker-slogan philosophy to make Joel Osteen blush.

(Side note: Between Stassi dating Patrick and Scheana dating Robert Valletta, is it just us, or do these women really go in for some cheesy Danny Tanner types.)

“I am in a relationship right now,” Stassi confirmed to Andy Cohen on Monday.

Now, we know who Stassi is dating, and it seems that after a dating past that includes Patrick and the likes of Jax Taylor, it seems Stassi has broken the cycle with a non-douche.

“It is very new, but they are exclusive,” an insider revealed to E! News.

“Stassi is happy that she didn’t have to use a dating app and met him organically through her best friends.”

The source adds:

“Beau is very social and likable within his friend group, and that’s why Katie [Maloney] and Kristen [Doute] thought he would be a good match for her.”

Is seems Beau possesses the two most important traits for any human being – a sense of humor and a love of dogs:

“Stassi thinks he’s hilarious, and they both share similar humor,” the insider continued.

“They have been spending a lot of time together, and he stays at her apartment often. They both bond over their obsession with their dogs. Beau has slowly been introduced to the Vanderpump circle and there have been no issues yet.”

Stassi was reluctant to speak about Beau when speaking to Cohen, but she did have some kind parting words for Meagher:

“He’s a wonderful person and whoever he finds is a really lucky woman,” she said.

“He’s just not right for me. Once you try twice, like give it two really good shots, you’re not supposed to be together.”

Is it possible that the cast of VPR is … growing up?!

Someone get this girl 14 Pump-tinis, STAT!

We need some bad decisions, and we need ‘em now!

Watch Vanderpump Rules online can make her way back to the op of the social totem pole.

Ben Affleck Introduces to Lindsay Shookus to Jennifer Garner!

There’s awkward, and then there’s … well, just about everything Ben Affleck does these days.

The Batfleck is living proof that you can be a world-famous, wildly successful millionaire, and something of an incorrigible f-ck-up at the same time.

It would almost be endearing. Ya know, were it not for all the groping and whatnot.

These days, Ben is dating Lindsay Shookus, a relationship that’s done wonders for his mental health and well-being–if you ask Ben Affleck.

Insiders say many others are somewhat less enthused about Shoofleck pairing, including Ben’s long-suffering ex-wife, Jennifer Garner.

The problem, it seems, is not that Jen doesn’t like Lindsay, but rather that she feels Shookus might be a bad influence at a time when Ben should really be focusing on self-improvement and maintaining his relationship with his children.

Sources say Ben and Lindsay enjoy drinking together, which is a problem, as Ben’s been in and out of rehab several times.

Just before getting romantically involved with Shookus, he had reportedly informed Jen that he’d put the plug in the jug for good.

Following his most recent stint in treatment, Ben has apparently sworn off the sauce again, but insiders claim Garner is understandably still skeptical of his new relationship.

Because Ben only makes good decisions when he’s in the director’s chair, he apparently decided the best solution to this was to arrange a sit-down between Lindsay and Jen.

We assume the idea to spend the afternoon with his ex-wife and current girlfriend came to Ben during a shaky, sweaty rehab nightmare, and the guy is clearly a believer in making his dreams come true.

According to OK! magazine, the meeting took place Saturday afternoon at Jen’s home.

“Ben and Lindsay looked so happy to finally be making their relationship legit with Jen,” a source tells the tabloid.

“They’ve had to tiptoe around and Jen has resisted having the kids hang out with Lindsay,” the insider adds.

“Ben was dressed up and seemed to really want to make a good impression on Jen–like, how clean and healthy he looks. Lindsay looked a little nervous, but was getting support from Ben.”

This is a man who presumably has a form-fitting Batman costume in his closet, yet he apparently doesn’t rock it when he’s trying to make a good impression?

We’re rooting for you, Ben, but you might be beyond hope, bruh.

But hey, maybe he was afraid that any reminder of Justice League’s less-than-stellar reviews and box office returns would cause him to lapse into Sad Affleck mode.

Kate Middleton Introduces a Children’s Mental Health Video Resource!

The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families produced an animated video designed to show children how to talk about mental health issues. That's a wonderful resource for many children.

Kate Middleton, who is a patron of the organization, provides the introduction, lending her voice and celebrity status to a worthy cause.

We have the short video for you below, and it's really worth watching.

We would expect nothing less from the Duchess of Cambridge.

This isn't just because Kate Middleton is already a mother of two, with a third on the way. Though, obviously, this kind of topic is going to be near and dear to her heart as a mother.

By marrying into the British Royal Family, Kate Middleton did more than just become an implied villain on Grimm.

(Don't ask)

She inherited a lot of responsibilities — one of which being that she'll very probably be queen in the not-so-distant future.

Overall, she has an obligation to the British people — whose tax dollars include millions specifically for the royals — to use her influence and celebrity status for positive effect.

One of the ways that she's doing this is by introducing this video, aimed at children, that talks about mental and emotional health.

Mental health is very complicated.

Until very recently, the subject was almost taboo among most people.

It's been pointed out that Millennials, stereotypically, are willing to bluntly discuss things like depression and anxiety.

Part of that is being the first generation to grow up with evolving technology, from the internet to social media.

This provided not only access to mental health resources that aren't hidden behind a paywall (as actually seeing a therapist is), but has allowed Millennials to engage with each other and share their own experiences.

There's where you get conversations where people say "oh, I've always done that … I never knew that it was called executive dysfunction!" or "wait, my life doesn't feel like it looks like on those commercials, but it sounds like I'm depressed."

Knowing the names for ways that you're feeling puts you one step closer to finding helpful coping mechanisms.

This video is for younger children, though, and doesn't use diagnostic terminology or talk about "coping mechanisms" in a formal way.

Rather it talks about feelings.

Some of us don't live on emotional roller coasters now that we're adults, and under normal circumstances are feelings are more or less limited to feelings like contentmenthungry, and drunk.

For children, however (and for many adults), there's a whole spectrum of feelings that their tiny little bodies and still-developing brains cannot contain.

Magnifying that is the general powerlessness of children and the fact that a lot of parents don't have a clue on how to listen to a child and know what's normal for children and what could be a sign of mental illness.

So a lot of what the video talks about is how children can start conversations with their parents, teachers, and even their peers about how they've been feeling lately and what symptoms they've been experienced.

But it's all handled so informally that they avoid medical jargon at all costs. 

It's important to note (though the video does not) that, in many cases, symptoms of mental health problems in young children can be signs of abuse of various types.

This is a great way to talk about this without making abused children reflexively defensive about what's been happening to them.

A child might be afraid to tell an adult what's happened to them at home, but they might not associate their trouble sleeping and stomach aches and acting out with the trauma that they are enduring.

Adorably, the video even deals with how to show good listening skills if a friend comes up to talk to them about mental health.

Always with the suggestion that an adult might be better equipped to help out with the problem.

It's wonderful that Kate Middleton provided the introduction for this video.

By lending her voice, she gives it more weight and more reach.

There are too many people who still see mental health as a personal failing in which they do not see purely physical ailments. That's sad, and only education can change that.

Even if you don't have kids, this video is cute:

Amber Portwood Introduces New Boyfriend, Gets Slammed By Haters

It’s only been three months since Amber Portwood broke off her engagement to Matt Baier, but it seems the troubled Teen Mom star is having zero trouble with moving on.

Over the weekend, Portwood revealed that she’s found someone new – and fan reactions to the news have been decidedly mixed.

“Don’t rush into anything enjoy time with yourself and Leah!! Heal and rejoice in being single!” one follower wrote,

“She should stay single for a while and focus on herself and most importantly, Leah,” another commented.

Amber was having none of the criticism and quickly lashed out on Twitter, writing:

“There’s nothing wrong with dating over 3 months after breaking up with someone..crazy how people judge and are so quick to talk shit? #FYou”

She’s inarguably right about that, but Amber is also deliberately over-simplifying the situation, and there are a few problems with her argument.

For one, she’s doing that annoying thing reality stars do, where they complain about and act completely baffled by all the interest in their personal lives, even though they’re literally famous for nothing other than living out their personal lives in a public forum.

We call it “that spotlight is hurting my eyes, but don’t you dare turn it off” logic.

On top of that, Amber has a long history of serious emotional instability and deeply troubled relationships.

And we don’t mean “troubled” in the way we’ve come to expect from reality stars.

Shortly after her relationship with Gary Shirley, Portwood was charged with felony domestic violence and sentenced to five years in prison.

Her relationship with Baier was only slightly less dysfunctional, characterized by drug use allegations, infidelity, and rumors of Amber helping Matt avoid child support payments for the indeterminate number of kids he fathered before he met her.

All of this is made all the more disconcerting when one recalls that Amber is raising an 8-year-old daughter.

So yes, in most cases, there’s nothing wrong with someone quickly getting over an old love with a new love.

But Amber is a unique case, and she has every reason to proceed with caution.

Watch Teen Mom: OG online to relive the rocky road that brought Amber to where she is today.
