Kendall Jenner’s alleged stalker is making his way through the criminal justice system, but the problem is … even if he gets the book thrown at him, he could be out within days. Law enforcement sources tell us, it doesn’t really matter 37-year-old…
Ryan Edwards’ arrest record has been cause for alarm, and so has his substance abuse. Plus, you know, that time he threatened to murder Taylor McKinney.
But though we don’t get to say this often, folks, but we have actual good news about Ryan.
He is in rehab — and it looks like he’s in for the long haul.
RadarOnline reports that Ryan Edwards is in rehab.
This isn’t his first time — he went last year, after nodding off en route to his own wedding.
His first time in rehab was apparently in 2012.
But according to RadarOnline‘s source, “[Ryan] isn’t supposed to be out [of rehab] until February or March.”
That means that he may be in for a 6-month stint … and may miss the birth of his son.
“Mackenzie moved out of the lake house they were living in,” the insider shared. “And is now living with her parents.”
RadarOnline also reached out to Larry Edwards, Ryan’s father, for confirmation.
The tabloid did not receive confirmation — or a denial.
When asked about rehab, Larry said: “You know I can’t comment on that.”
When asked about whether Ryan will miss the birth of his son, Larry said: “You know I can’t say.”
The Tennessee court system was also unable to confirm or deny whether Ryan’s rehab stint was voluntary or court-ordered.
As the good folks over at The Ashley have noted, Mackenzie has taken to social media and publicly doubled down on supporting her troubled husband.
Mackenzie wrote: “I’m so sorry but I will continue to stand up for what I believe in no matter how chopped, edited, and jumbled it may be.”
“I have stuck by my husband through some of the darkest times imaginable,” she affirms.
“Have mistakes been made? Hell yes,” she admits. “Have they been accounted for, dealt with and resolved, yep.”
“Why do I post pictures of my husband and myself?” she asks. “Because we do love each other. And that is real life.”
“If you want to fault me for standing by my husband and sticking to my vows,” she says. “Then don’t follow me.”
Ryan Edwards’ criminal history is troubling enough.
But his latest incident is much more alarming than your more garden-variety heroin possession.
After Taylor McKinney made a relatively mild jab at Ryan and Mackenzie, subtweeting that they were unable to function as adults, Ryan lost it.
He reportedly contacted Taylor and threatened to show up and murder him.
That did not go well for Ryan. Not with the legal system, and not with fans.
His behavior has appeared to worsen with time rather than improve.
That is why fans were encouraging Mackenzie to move on without Ryan.
That, of course, and the fact that many don’t see Ryan as a good father. Even Maci Bookout thinks Ryan is a danger to Bentley.
We of course hope that Ryan can turn things around in terms of his behavior during this lengthy rehab stay that RadarOnline is reporting.
(It is, of course, not quite confirmed — but we hope that it’s true)
He needs to get better for himself, but also for everyone around him.
Bill Cosby may spend the rest of his life in prison.
The disgraced comedian was sentenced to three-10 years behind bars on Tuesday, following his conviction in April on charges of drugging and raping Andrea Constand in 2004.
He will serve this time in state prison.
Cosby is currently 81 years old, so you can do the math in terms of whether he ever walks out of the big house a free man.
But many people will say this is the justice he deserves.
After more than 60 women came forward over the past few years and accused him of sexual assault, the public outcry was intense.
Heck, many people will say he deserves a far harsher punishment than he was handed today, but it’s no slap on the wrist.
Prior to his sentencing, Cosby was officially labeled a “sexually violent predator.”
This means his name will appear on a sex-offender registry, which is sent to neighbors and schools.
He also must commit to lifetime counseling and has been ordered to report quarterly to authorities.
Also in court Tuesday, prosecutors released Constand’s complete victim impact statement.
It was five pages in length and it detailed the harrowing experience of being sexually assaulted by Cosby, along with how this incident continued to plague her through life… up to and including today.
“I wasn’t sure what had actually happened but the pain spoke volumes,” she wrote of what transpired, adding:
“The shame was overwhelming. Self-doubt and confusion kept me from turning to my family or friends as I normally did.”
“I felt completely alone, unable to trust anyone, including myself…”
“The psychological, emotional and financial bullying included a slander campaign in the media that left my entire family reeling in shock and disbelief,” continued Constand in a lengthy message that we’ve excerpted below.
Focusing on the period shortly after the rape, during which she still had to work with Cosby in the Temple University athletic department, Constand wrote:
“The sound of his voice over the phone felt like a knife going through my guts.
“The sight of the man who drugged and sexually assaulted me coming into the basketball office filled me with dread…”
Following a mistrial in the summer of 2017, Cosby’s re-trial lasted 13 days this past spring.
It included testimony from Constand and five other women who claim they were also drugged and sexually assaulted by the disgusting star.
Despite the influx of women who have accused him of these heinous crimes, Cosby has maintained his innocence.
He’s even joked about the allegations and said at times that the women (like, ALL the women) were simply racist and had it out for him; a very famous African-American role model.
Seriously, Cosby has to be one of the worst handful of people on the planet.
Over two days in mid-April, however, Constand testified that Cosby gave her wine and three blue pills to “take the edge off” before he sexually assaulted her at his home near Philadelphia in January of 2004.
“When the sexual assault happened, I was a young woman brimming with confidence and looking forward to a future bright with possibilities,” she wrote the aforementioned impact statement.
“Now, almost 15 years later, I’m a middle-aged woman who’s been stuck in a holding pattern for most of her adult life, unable to heal fully or to move forward.”
Throughout this entire ordeal, Cosby’s wife, Camille, and his daughters – Erika, Errin and Evin – have stood by the star’s side.
Camille even released a lengthy, blistering statement after her husband’s conviction five months ago, in which she said in part:
“This is mob justice, not real justice.”
That was her say at the time.
But Judge Steven T. O’Neill got the final say in court this afternoon, stating simply:
“It is time for justice in a court of law. The day has come. The time has come.”
UPDATE: Cosby was denied bail in court, handcuffed and taken straight to jail.

It was time for Mercedes Javid to say goodbye to her father on Shahs of Sunset Season 7 Episode 4, and it resulted in the most emotional episode of this Bravo reality series yet.
If you watch Shahs of Sunset online, you know that MJ has been hoping that her father would get better in time to walk her down the aisle on her wedding day.
In a tragic twist of fate, he passed away, but MJ continued to try and plan her wedding day while simultaneously trying to process the fact that her father was gone.
MJ wanted to try on some wedding dresses, so she Reza Farahan and Mike Shouhed made their way to Orange County, and MJ wasted no time in trying on some of the dresses.
Reza and Mike realized there was something amiss with MJ when she disappeared inside a dressing room, and did not come back out for some time.
“No, I’m not okay,” Mercedes sobbed from the inside.
“I just wanted to share this with my father,” she said through the tears to her friends as she wore a wedding dress.
“My dad isn’t going to walk me down the aisle. Boom, crash,” she said in a one-to-one with audiences, addressing the fact that there was no way he could walk her down the aisle.
The episode was a somber one for sure, and it was evident that MJ’s father had a profound impact on all of the cast members.
While everyone was fighting through the grief, Mona celebrated her birthday with her friends.
If you watch Shahs of Sunset online, you know that Nema, Mona’s brother, was getting close to GG at the top of Shahs of Sunset Season 7.
The issue was that Nema was in a relationship with a woman named Erica, but he went ahead and tried to romance GG.
He even asked GG to meet up with him for a date when the group returned from a trip to a ski resort. Erica managed to keep her cool, but it was very awkward.
GG was confused because Erica seemed perfect and very much Nema’s type on paper, so it made her wonder whether Nema was really as nice as he implied.
Let’s face it, if you’re in a relationship and trying to hook up with someone else, then that’s not the nicest thing to do.
GG has had her fair share of drama thanks to the men she has chosen to be in a relationship with.
She’s currently battling her way through a divorce from Shalom Yeruoshalmi. Their relationship was filled with toxicity, so it was surprising that they opted to get married in the first place.
GG was shocked to learn that she would have to jump through hoops if she wanted to get Shalom out of her life for good.
That’s what happens when you marry someone without knowing who they are. The whole GG-Shalom plot got long in the tooth the moment they were shown to be arguing.
