For nearly a month now, Jenelle Evans' status as a Teen Mom has been up in the air.
After she posed for that ridiculous gun selfie shortly after the shooting in Parkland, Florida, and especially after her husband, David Eason, went on that terrible homophobic rant and got himself fired, no one was sure if MTV would be comfortable with employing her any longer.
It seemed like, at long last, they were finally drawing a line.
But apparently everything's cool now!
According to a new report from The Ashley's Reality Roundup, Jenelle is going back to filming very, very soon.
And the details are just so, so special …
1. Where to Start?
3. What a Jackass
4. A Defense?
6. Who’s Next?
It’s been nearly two months since we first learned that Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson are engaged.
The news came just weeks after word of Josiah and Lauren’s courtship went public, but that’s not unusual in the Duggar clan.
Relationships proceed quickly for the members of reality TV’s biggest brood, even when the parties involved are as young as Josiah and Lauren.
(He’s 21; she’s just 18.)
But the newest Duggar couple is unique in at least two important ways:
For one thing, this is not Josiah’s first courtship.
As Duggar obsessives are no doubt aware, Josiah briefly courted Marjorie Jackson back in 2015.
The relationship didn’t work out, making Josiah the first of his generation to enter a courtship that didn’t result in marriage.
On top of that, virtually nothing is known about Lauren, her past, or her family.
A few details about Lauren’s parents and siblings have been revealed on the Duggars’ social media pages, and not surprisingly, her clan shares a lot in common with Josiah’s.
“They’re really similar, our families, with a lot of the same goals,” Josiah said of the Swansons in a recent interview.
He’s certainly not joking on that score.
Lauren is the daughter of a minister, and her mother is currently pregnant with her ninth child.
The Swanson family may never balloon to the staggering size of the Duggars, but it seems Lauren’s parents are also big into procreation.
But what about Lauren herself?
In video interviews she’s recorded alongside her fiancé, Swanson has been virtually silent.
No big surprise there, as we imagine it’s rather daunting to go straight from the shadows of obscurity into the glaring spotlight of Duggar fame.
But between her youth and the quickness with which her relationship with Josiah has proceeded, it’s possible that Lauren will marry into the Duggar family while remaining more of a mystery to fans than any of her predecessors.
Naturally, fans have a lot of questions.
For now, at least, Lauren’s not doing much talking, but fortunately, some of those questions have laughably obvious answers.
One thing that a lot of fans seem curious about is Lauren’s education level.
Many have wondered if she’ll attend college, and while Ms. Swanson has been mum on the matter, we think we can safely answer for her by saying, no, she will not.
Duggars have little respect for formal education, and very few members of the family have shown any interest in further study beyond the GEDs they all get when they complete their homeschooling.
As for Lauren’s curious lack of a southern accent – a matter that’s also raised quite a few eyebrows among the Duggar faithful – well, we don’t know for sure where she’s from, but we’re guessing it’s of little concern to Josiah.
After all, a woman doesn’t have to be Dixie Land to pop out a whole lot of children.

Last night on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe struggled to keep her pregnancy a secret, while Kourtney pondered more kids.
Seriously. She’s thinking about number four.
When Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 19 got underway, everybody and their mother had babies on their minds.
If you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online, you know Khloe Kardashian is pregnant, and last night she revealed her birth plan.
“We’re having the baby in Cleveland,” Khloe told Kim one afternoon, somehow not sounding all that disappointed about the idea.
The baby’s father, Tristan Thompson, plays for the NBA’s Cavaliers in The Land; Khloe’s doctor is flying in from L.A. to deliver.
In typical Kardashian fashion, Khloe revealed that after her baby enters the world, she plans on eating her child’s placenta.
As for whether she plans to marry Tristan, Khloe said not in the near future, adding, “I was married before and it didn’t do anything.”
“I’m in a good healthy relationship,” she said, while sister Kim opened up about her regrets over hiring a surrogate for her third child.
“Even though I will appreciate not having to gain the weight and then lose the weight … I so would have rather have done it on my own.”
Kim added that she worries she won’t feel the same bond with Chi, saying “I just hope I care as much. Everyone says it’s like no different.”
Kourtney Kardashian, meanwhile, revealed she may be considering having another baby, even if that means freezing her eggs.
As for a sperm donor?
No need for that, she says, because hey, she has “real prospects.” Out with Scott Disick, in with Younes Bendjima, apparently.
Kourt decided against egg-freezing for now, but insisted she’s “done having kids in life.” We have no idea what that means TBH.
She’s got three children already, and is 38.
That’s not too old to have more kids by any means, but somehow we think this was mere filler for an episode devoid of much excitement.
We also got some insight into Kim Kardashian firing Stephanie Shepherd … which she seems to think went just fine, thank you.
On the phone with a friend, Kim recalled approaching her ex-assistant and saying, “I just think that you’ve outgrown your position here.”
Kim added, “It ended like really well.”
“She knew it wasn’t working.”
Sunday night on Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 17, Kim received some alarming news about her surrogate.
Meanwhile, the life and times of Lord Disick once again took center stage … and there is never a dull moment with him.
As you can see in the clip above, Scott opened up about how he’s dating Sofia Richie, and it was awkward. Very awkward.
Not just because he has three kids with Kourtney Kardashian and any new relationship would be somewhat awkward, but …
Sofia Richie is 19. Scott Disick is 34.
Nineteen. Naturally, eyebrows were raised – no small feat in a family where there are no taboos and Kylie had a baby at 20.
Fortunately (or unfortunately), there were other distractions going on … such as Kourtney’s house being infested with pests.
Just when she got rid of Scott too. Oh!
Most significantly, though, Kim Kardashian’s surrogate’s pregnancy leaked to the media, and this sent the star into a panic.
Incredibly, celebrity gossip site TMZ broke the news about her third child before Kimberly had even told people close to her.
“I honestly am absolutely fuming that there are all these articles coming out about our surrogate,” Kardashian said.
“People started to write me asking if it was true,” she added, “and I just said we don’t want to talk about it right now.”
Her surrogate’s information also leaked, which was a huge breach of privacy for anyone in that kind of situation.
Kim called it “so invasive and so frustrating,” and lamented that this was the reason she wanted to keep this on the DL.
Even Scott didn’t know (above) and he’s not that out of the loop. Then to make matters worse, it was Fashion Week.
That’s right, Kim found herself in front of swarms of media and paparazzi when she was there to support Kendall.
Unwilling to lie about it, but also unprepared to confirm or go public with the news, she was in a really tough position.
Fortunately, she saw Kendall in the Alexander Wang show and was able to dodge the issue … at least momentarily.
It’s not that Kim was trying to be shady or secretive, it was just a private matter – involving a third-party – within her family.
This should have been a happy time for everyone involved and instead it became a huge cause of stress and anxiety.
Sure, it’s par for the course in our celebrity culture, but people like Kim’s surrogate certainly aren’t used to being exposed.
All in all, she handled this about as well as anyone could have, and we know Chicago West is here and she’s beautiful.
Congrats Kim and family!
Remember back in the day when Paris Hilton was the most talked-about celebrity of them all?
Man, how times have changed …
Many, many years ago, you couldn’t look at a tabloid or a gossip site without hearing all about Paris and her shenanigans.
Everyone watched The Simple Life, everyone used her “that’s hot” catchphrase, and believe it or not, there were quite a few people who looked up to her.
But at a certain point, a little over ten years ago or so, all that began to change.
And that was because Kim Kardashian hit the scene hard.
If you know your Kardashian history, you know that back in Paris’ heyday, she and Kim were very close. Kim tagged along to many of Paris’ events, and she even worked for her for a while.
It was common to see paparazzi photos featuring Paris with Kim there in the background, but when Kim’s sex tape was leaked, things began to change.
A few months after that, Kim got her own show, and she started becoming the more popular one, because let’s be real, there’s only so many reality stars the average person can care about at any given time.
So after that, Kim didn’t need to work for Paris anymore, and she didn’t need her by her side to get attention.
At some point during Kim’s big rise to reality show glory, they had a falling out, and they’ve been enemies for years.
Like, their friendship was so dead that Paris once compared Kim’s ass to “cottage cheese inside a big trash bag.” The bad blood ran deep.
In 2014, they posed for a photo together, and many of us thought it was a sign that they’d made up, but in 2015, Paris was back to making shady quotes about Kim in interviews, so it was pretty hard to tell what was going on between them.
Last week, photos from Kanye’s latest fashion campaign were released, and in some of the photos, Paris was featured looking pretty much exactly like Kim.
Kim shared some of the photos on Instagram with the hashtag “forever the OG,” and Paris shared them as well, writing that it was “so much fun being a #KimClone.”
It certainly seems like their friendship is back on track now, right?
And according to a new report, that may be because Paris is looking to gain a little something from a renewed friendship with the Kardashian family.
“Paris really wants to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians as a regular, or even as a friend role,” a source close to the family claims.
“Kim and Kris feel bad for her and are considering offering her a contract to appear on the next season.”
That sounds absolutely amazing, doesn’t it? Just imagine: Paris back where she belongs, on reality television, being her gloriously ridiculous self.
It’s also a little sad if they’re offering her a contract out of pity — but it does sound like Paris is cool with it.
As the source says, “Paris thinks that they only have what they have because of her and has made this crystal clear to Kris.”
We’d argue that they “have what they have” because of Kim’s sex tape, and also because of the late Robert Kardashian’s O.J. Simpson connection, but Paris probably did help a bit.
On a bit of a happier note, the insider adds that “Paris and Kim are tight again in the sense that Paris has been kissing her butt lately.”
“The two of them have made amends for talking so much sh-t about each other. Paris even invited the whole family to her upcoming wedding.”
All’s well that ends well, we suppose.
And if it ends in Paris Hilton herself bringing her special brand of nonsense to Keeping Up with the Kardashians?
June Shannon's From Not to Hot is including her ex, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson. You might say that she's sharing the wealth.
As you'll see in the clip below, though Sugar Bear is eager to see his daughter Alana again, one obstacle is giving him pause. Well, giving his new wife pause:
Child support. Every deadbeat dad's nightmare.
For years, things were going reasonably well for Mama June Shannon and Sugar Bear.
Even when the couple split, they still had Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
And then Mama June ended up in bed with convicted child-molester who had once preyed upon her own daughter. The show got canceled, and the good times and easy money came to an end.
Astoundingly, Mama June was able to make a comeback with her own makeover series, From Not To Hot. She recently flaunted her insane weight loss at a premiere.
And, since Sugar Bear's such an important part of her past and her story, he's along for the ride.
Yes, including in season 2.
In the clip that you'll see below, Sugar Bear and his new wife, Jennifer Lamb, are meeting with an attorney.
Because Sugar Bear wants to see his daughter, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson.
Sugar Bear alleges that June has been keeping Alana from him. He claims to have not seen his daughter for six months — since he got married to Jennifer.
We're not sure if we're meant to infer that June is angry that he remarried; that would be silly, since June Shannon has her own boyfriend now.
A more likely explanation would be that June Shannon accuses Sugar Bear of domestic violence, of having abused her and her daughters in the past. That's very, very serious.
Here's the thing: Sugar Bear isn't legally recognized as Alana's dad. So, he would need to fight to even be acknowledged as her father before he could get visitation.
And the attorney mentions to him — and his wife — that there's a price to be paid.
A literal price, folks. Child support payments are a real responsibility.
And apparently, Sugar Bear has never in his life paid them before now.
Here is where Sugar Bear reminds viewers that he better resembles an offensively stereotypical cartoon character than a real person.
Sugar Bear describes how he "plans" to pay child support:
"I'm not worried about it right now. I'll figure it out when that time gets here."
That's barely even an okay way to decide what to eat for dinner with friends. Winging it with financial planning is a recipe for catastrophe.
And it's not exactly reassuring coming from a guy who wants to spend more time with his daughter.
You know who isn't loving this? Jennifer Lamb.
She says that she's totally on board with Sugar Bear spending more time with Alana. She says that she'd make a good stepmom.
But she doesn't love the idea of yet another expense.
"We can't even finish saving up for our honeymoon, so how are we going to pay child support?"
The realization that this couple got married six months ago and still haven't gone on their honeymoon is … sad.
She does her best to sound adamant, insisting: "We're not dipping into our honeymoon fund."
See the exchange:
Sunday on Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 16, Scott learned that Kourtney had a boyfriend and promptly freaked.
To the surprise of absolutely no one.
If you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online, you’re all too familiar with Scott’s erratic behavior and volatile mental state.
Still, he was in rare form last night.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 16 featured Kourtney venting to sister Khloe about a recent phone call with him.
After he called at 2 a.m., Kourtney revealed that she dropped the mega-bombshell on him: Younes Bendjima is the same of said bomb:
“I have a boyfriend. He’s 24 years old.”
Kourtney and Younes met in late 2016, but this had been somewhat on the DL until recently. Scott did not take it well, to put it mildly.
He hung up on her, at which point she shrugged, “I just thought he knew.” Seriously, does the guy not read any celebrity gossip or what.
Disick later lost his marbles a bit over Kourt’s relationship status, getting into another heated exchange with her. Apparently it was bad.
So had that Kourt asked her three-time baby daddy what he was “on” at the time, to which he allegedly responded, “f–king everything.”
Things got to the point where she visited his house to see if he was all right, but later the tensions appeared to have cooled down somewhat.
Scott arrived to pick up Mason for a sleepover and exchanged a light-hearted “Love you, partner” to Kourtney on his way out the door.
Hey, take what you can get, right?
Meanwhile, Kris’ old friend Faye Resnick confided in her that O.J. Simpson’s upcoming parole “Scares the death out of me.”
“I’ve been having nightmares about that,” added Kris, whose late husband, Robert Kardashian, was a friend of Simpson’s.
Jenner admitted to being “in denial” about O.J.’s parole, while also exploring the option of being cremated into a memorial diamond.
Guess it was a slow week in Calabasas.
After debating the idea with several of her kids to kill screentime, she shockingly decided against the idea of being made into jewelry.
It’s the reveal we’ve been waiting months for, and on Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 14, Khloe Kardashian finally revealed the news to her family.
While Khloe may currently be six months pregnant, the episode was recorded back when she was just six weeks pregnant.
When the episode got underway, Khloe dished the good news to her assistant, Alexa Okyle.
“I’m pregnant,” Khloe revealed emotionally, and you could tell she was excited, but cautious about the news.
The Revenge Body host then went into detail about the moment Tristan was told the good news via Facetime.
“He was like, ‘Wait are you kidding or serious?’” she recalled.
Instead of going guns blazing to tell all to her family, Khloe opted to hold off the news until an upcoming family barbecue. That meant just Khloe, Tristan, Alexa and some production members were in the know about it.
Later, Kourtney Kardashian grew concerned over Khloe’s diet regime because Khloe had gained some weight.
“You’ve gained a few pounds,” Kourtney said. “Have you amped up the eating since Tristan’s been back?”
Luckily, Khloe revealed all to her family shortly after. At the barbecue, Khloe cradled niece Dream Kardashian as she plucked up the courage to tell everyone.
“We’re so lucky and blessed to have everyone here … we’re having a baby,” she said in a real tearjerker of a scene.
It was evident Kris Jenner was ecstatic by the news, and it was almost like she breathed a huge sigh of relief when she got the news.
Either that or she realized she could make the family a whole lot of money from a dual pregnancy.
“I always thought that Khloe would may be one of those women who never had kids,” Kris confirmed to the cameras.
The topic of conversation quickly turned to the due date, and Khloe confirmed, “I’ll be six weeks on Tuesday.”
Given that the show is far behind on the pregnancy news, we may need to wait a long time to see the offspring on KUWTK.
Kylie Jenner did not grace her family with her presence at the event, so she was told the news via Facetime. Kylie seemed overjoyed but continued to remain coy about her own pregnancy.
Seriously, what’s the holdup, Kylie?
Maybe we’ll get another two-night event to confirm the 20-year-old has a bun in the oven. Either that or she’ll use it to plug Life of Kylie because that show did not exactly kill it in the ratings.
The other big shocker from the episode did not involve any pregnancy news. It was all about Kim Kardashian.
The 37-year-old confirmed that her glam squad would continue to work even she was in a coma. The reason?
Kardashian had glam squad requests in her will. Yes, it makes sense that Kim would want to continue to look good when she has no control over her body.
Aside from those two developments, the producers could have easily added five minutes on to Sunday’s episode with all of the details.
