Audrey Roloff has a seemingly happy and healthy marriage.
This appears to be the case even though the Little People, Big World star helps anchor a reality television show…
… and we all know what fate typically befalls couples that appear on these sort of programs.
What we’re trying to say is this:
Audrey Roloff may very well be someone from whom you should take marital advice.
She and Jeremy definitely make their relationship work.
But the TLC personality has come under fire of late for not just offering up words of wisdom for her fellow wives around the Internet – but for clearly trying to profit off these words.
Take a recent Instagram post, for example.
On Wednesday, Roloff shared the photo above and included with it a lengthy caption.
It begins as follows:
To find and still seek, now that is love. This is the lifeblood behind our mission @beating50 .
We hope to inspire couples to keep seeking, keep pursuing, and keep learning how to love their husbands and wives beyond their wedding day. T
he pursuit shouldn’t end with, “I do.” What fun is that? Your marriage (or future marriage) should be a lifelong love story.
The point here is not a new one.
Nor is it a misguided one.
Audrey is basically saying couples need to work on their marriage and not take their partners for granted.
We very much agree with that theme.
But then Roloff continues:
Marriage is not about saying “I do” in a moment, it’s about living out “I do” in the mundane everyday moments #stayingido.
Your actions and attitude should reflect the promise you made to love – for better or for worse. To “still seek” implies a relentless pursuit.
LOVE IS A VERB.
This is not the first time Audrey has waxed very poetically about her definition of love.
She did so HERE, too.
Both times, meanwhile, Roloff concluded her message with an offer and a link that got her in trouble.
“Want one of these rad sweatshirts “Love is a verb” sweatshirts (also comes in black)? Grab one for 10% off with code LOVE2018 – link in bio shop.beating50percent.com,” concluded the mother of one this time around.
And it’s just….YEESH. Come on, Auds.
A handful of followers find it very distasteful that Roloff included constant links to her business website when talking about things as personal as love and religion.
It’s hard to take Roloff’s theme very seriously when it’s clear she’s just saying it to sell some sweatshirts.
Last summer, fans had this same issue when it came to how frequently Audrey brought up the topic of God.
Is she serious about her faith?
Does she truly love her husband?
Of course and of course.
Moreover, we aren’t suggesting that she isn’t free to make money off her clothing line. She absolutely has this right and absolutely should be an entrepreneur if she so desires.
But perhaps she should stop mixing personal advice with her business endeavor.
It just leaves a bad taste in our mouths.
Do you feel the same way?

Where is Ron Burgundy when we need him?
Someone has to tell Matt Damon that he needs to take a timeout and not talk for awhile.
On the heels of a reputation-damaging into with ABC News, in which Damon largely brushed off the ongoing issue of sexual harassment in Hollywood, the actor spoke to Business Insider on Monday.
And he once again shoved his pompous foot deeply into his misguided mouth.
“We’re in this watershed moment, and it’s great,” Damon said of how predators and sexist miscreants such as Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Louis CK and Charlie Rose are being exposed on a near-daily basis.
Did the star just leave it at that, however?
Of course not. He felt the need to defend innocent men for some reason, saying on record:
“I think one thing that’s not being talked about is there are a whole shitload of guys – the preponderance of men I’ve worked with – who don’t do this kind of thing and whose lives aren’t going to be affected.”
It’s the lives of whose who will NOT be affected that we really need to be discussing right now.
Forget the endless array of women whose personal and professional lives have been shattered by the actions of some really gross individuals.
What about the good guys, people?!?
“If I have to sign a sexual-harassment thing, I don’t care, I’ll sign it. I would have signed it before. I don’t do that, and most of the people I know don’t do that.”
That’s fine. That’s great. No one has accused you of anything, dude.
Except now for being a pompous, insensitive know-it-all who keeps missing the entire point of the #MeToo movement.
In response to his latest comments, stars such as Debra Messing, Rose McGowan and Cher have taken to Twitter in order to tear Damon a new one.
“Matt Damon- SERIOUSLY? You are a smart man. A privileged, white man,” the Will & Grace actress wrote on Monday.
“This is NOT the time to ask for a pat on the back. How about we NOT celebrate men who are simply decent human beings. Stay on track, Matt.
“It’s not about you.”
“Matt Damon is the epitome of a faux ally whose performative wokeness is more about servicing his own ego than the needs of the oppressed & disenfranchised.”
And McGowan, who has asserted for years that she was a rape victim of Weinstein’s:
“Matt Damon is dense AF.”
Late last week, Damon got into trouble for remarks he made to Peter Travers.
“There’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?” Damon said in that interview, pointing out the obvious for no reason and adding:
“Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated, without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?”
No one has conflated these actions.
But women everywhere have tried to explain, as Alyssa Milano did so eloquently on Twitter in response to Damon, that the “micro” can lead to the “macro.”
There’s clearly a widespread disrespect of women going on in Hollywood and it’s one that needs to be addressed on every level.
“We are so energized to kind of get retribution,” Damon also said last week.
“We live in this culture of outrage and injury… and we’re going to have to correct enough to kind of go, ‘Wait a minute. None of us came here perfect.'”
Are social media users sometimes too focused on outrage and on trolling anyone with whom they disagree? Sure.
Is that what’s happening amidst what Damon himself refers to as a “watershed moment” in entertainment? No. Not even a little bit.
We’ll let Milano explain what Damon continues to miss…
We are not outraged because someone grabbed our asses in a picture. We are outraged because we were made to feel this was normal.
We are outraged because we have been gaslighted. We are outraged because we were silenced for so long.
There are different stages of cancer. Some more treatable than others. But it’s still cancer.
Sexual harassment, misconduct, assault and violence is a systemic disease. The tumor is being cut out right now with no anesthesia.

We’re just gonna come right out and ask:
What’s with the Kardashian sisters dressed up like dead singers this Halloween?!?
Earlier this week, we posted a photo of Kourtney in a Michael Jackson costume, as she basically impersonated the iconic artist from a look he donned for the Academy Awards in 1991.
The mother of three earned some backlash for the ensemble, partly because Jackson was African-American and Kardashian is not.
And partly because many critics interpreted this as a mockery of Jackson’s memory.
He was a real person, they argued. He died in a tragic way. Heck, he had children!
Why would Kourtney think it would be appropriate to turn the King of Pop into a Halloween prop?
But Kim Kardashian heard it even more from social media users after she shared pictures of herself dressed as Aaliyah.
In this case, again, Aaliyah was black and Kim is not.
Moreover, Aaliyah had her life cut way short when she was killed in a plane crash at the age of 22, making it just strange for Kardashian to choose to imitate her for Halloween.
Here’s a look at that outfit:
Now, Kardashian has made a similar move.
As you can see in the photo at the outset of this article, Kardashian continued her theme of dressed up like music legends yesterday by rocking a Selena Quintanilla costume.
Wearing a copy of Selena’s well known sparkling purple bodysuit and styled with Selena’s signature brunette bangs, Kim channeled the late artist as she twirled around with a microphone in hand and shared her fake performance with the world on social media.
“My fave Selena!” she wrote as a caption.
Somehow, Kim wasn’t the only star to go out as Quintanilla.
Demi Lovato did so as well:
For those unaware, Quintanilla wore this outfit her last concert before being shot to death by the president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldívar, in 1995.
So, once again, Kardashian has decided to use someone’s sad and premature death as the basis for her Halloween costume.
And once again she’s getting dragged online for it.
“I am disgusted,” wrote one critic on Twitter, while others agreed.
They just found it really odd Kim would go this route (twice!), considering all the options she obviously had for Halloween.
What do you think of Kardashian’s decision here?
Is she honoring Selena’s memory?
Is she insulting it?
Was Selena actually her favorite artist? Or is she just saying that now to sound hip?
You know, to Kailyn Lowry, the situation with Briana DeJesus and her deadbeat baby daddies must be looking pretty good right about now.
Because Kailyn’s situation with Chris Lopez doesn’t just sound worse — it sounds frightening.
Are you ready to learn the real reason that Kailyn Lowry is keeping Lux away from Chris? Because it’s so much more than unsigned paperwork.
You know how Chris Lopez has reportedly refused to sign a legal document to acknowledge paternity of Lux, Kailyn’s baby whom she finally, finally named?
We’ve been hearing that the Teen Mom 2 star has banned Chris from seeing Lux until he officially accepts, in writing, that he is Lux’s father — with all of the potential responsibilities, financial and otherwise, that come with paternity.
Banning a baby daddy for that reason is absolutely valid, don’t get us wrong.
But now we’re hearing about a new reason that makes a whole lot more sense, but hasn’t been filmed at all for Teen Mom 2.
And, unfortunately, it looks like this real underlying reason is much more serious than an unsigned legal document.
The Ashley Reality Roundup reached out to Kail to learn more, and Kailyn explained the tension with Chris. Sort of.
“I don’t want to keep Lux from Chris. That’s not the goal.”
Right. That’s seemed like more of a means to an end than an end goal.
“The goal is to take some time right now to figure out what works for us.”
That’s interesting, since she’s not talking about signing paternity papers and talking more about what sort of arrangement will work.
That sounds like it has way more to do with the two of them.
“I’ve obviously been through this before and I do want Lux to eventually have a relationship with his dad. Right now the circumstances aren’t right for that, though.”
That’s vague but not necessarily ominous in and of itself. Kailyn clearly chose her words carefully.
But we are sorry to say that what Kailyn is so diplomatically avoiding saying is … worrisome at best.
As it turns out, Chris Lopez publicly bashing Kailyn Lowry and burning her book on Instagram is just the tip of the iceberg.
A production source told The Ashley Reality Roundup what’s been going on behind the scenes.
“She’s trying her best to keep the real reason off the show”
“So far, the drama with Chris hasn’t really been covered for the show, but that’s only because it is hard to do when Chris won’t sign on to appear or have his name on Teen Mom 2.”
Are you ready to hear the awful stuff?
“Chris was violent with Kail multiple times, once while she was holding the baby.”
That is monstrous. Even without the involvement of Lux, that is just … evil.
If it’s true that Chris Lopez has been violent with Kailyn, she’s absolutely right to keep herself — and her child — as far away from him as she can get.
According to that same source, Chris has also tried to break into her home, causing damage in the process to a window and to a doorframe.
And that’s not all.
“Some of the film crew noticed a hole was punched in Kail’s garage door, and she confided in someone on the crew that Chris did it.”
“Nothing was filmed about it, though.”
This is something that fans need to know.
“Kail is really trying to keep this off the show because of how bad she got ripped by fans last time when she was dealing with Javi.”
Horrible how a celebrity mom could get scared into silence about something that is deadly serious because of vicious fans.
First of all, it sounds like Kailyn needs to not only film this — as evidence, if nothing else — but get some sort of protective order.
Apparently Kailyn has “discussed” the idea of it, but hasn’t actually filed.
Too many women wait until it’s too late to get paperwork like that, either because they have a misguided desire to not get the man in trouble or because of a fatalistic fear that it won’t work.
A protective order isn’t a magical forcefield, but it’s a step in the right direction. Our justice system may be terrible at dealing with domestic violence, but violations of a court order might be taken seriously.
These reports are horrifying and we hope that Kailyn and her kids remain safe from harm.
A Wisconsin man and his girlfriend were recently busted by a police officer, going at it like a pair of sex kitten inside their car.
This isn’t totally unusual.
Other people have been caught by cops having sex in a car.
But here’s the thing about Bailey Puttkemery and Emily Scott that has caused their story to go viral:
When approached by the aforementioned La Crosse police officer and told to get dressed and stop banging… they refused!
“No, bro, I’m trying to f-ck,” Puttkemery told the officer, according to a police incident report obtained by The Smoking Gun.
This may be our favorite quote of the year.
The report goes on to say that the cop opened the rear passenger door and reiterated his demand that the couple cease fornicating.
Shortly thereafter (as in, not immediately, LOL), Puttkemery exited the car and made it clear that the officer was totally getting in the way of his game.
“You’re a man, you should understand,” Puttkemery told the cop. “It’s Oktoberfest weekend.”
Okay, we take it back. This is now our favorite quote of the year.
At another point, this legendary police report goes on to state, an unclothed Puttkemery told the officer:
“It’s just a dick. Nothing to be afraid of.”
The suspect continued to argue as he put his clothes on, trying to make the point that everyone should just chill and, hey, if he was going to jail anyway… he might as well finish, right?
No, really. This was Bailey’s actual reasoning.
When the cop asked Scott why the pair hadn’t simply stopped having sex, she allegedly replied: “He wanted to finish.”
Puttkemery was arrested for lewd and lascivious behavior and disorderly conduct, while Scott was busted for lewd and lascivious behavior and bail jumping.
However, prosecutors decided NOT to pursue the charges related to the incident, according to the La Crosse Tribune.
So Puttkemery and Scott will not see the inside of a jail cell, after all.
And Puttkemery is therefore free to once again see the inside of Scott with his penis … if you know what we mean!
