Matt Barnes stays winning … ‘cause he mopped the floor with his twin boys at the bowling alley!! The match was pretty epic … the two 10-year-olds were neck and neck with their ex-NBA dad — only a few pins apart heading into the 10th and…
Why has everything with Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson always happened so fast?!
Their engagement, their breakup, the backlash from the breakup …
It’s like everything has been happening in warp speed.
Do they exist in some slightly different universe in which time moves at a different pace?
Does being young and famous really make you wild and free enough to feel comfortable getting engaged to someone after a few seconds of dating?
It’s hard to say what exactly has been going on, but boy, it sure has been a lot.
As we all remember, Ariana and Pete got engaged in June after a few weeks of dating.
They moved in together, they got tattoos together … like we said, it’s been a lot.
Things seemed to be going great for them for a while, but last month, they suddenly split.
At first, reports claimed that nothing major had happened between them, that they simply realized the timing wasn’t right.
One would also imagine that the death of Mac Miller was so hard on Ariana that it must have been tough on their relationship.
So it was a sort of amicable, “maybe we’ll get back together someday” kind of breakup, right?
Yeah, not so much.
Things took a swift turn a few days ago when Pete made a joke about Ariana in a Saturday Night Live promo.
Well, sort of — in the promo, he proposed to the musical guest of the week, Maggie Rogers, because he moves so fast in relationships, get it?
It didn’t seem like a dig at her at all, but still, she wasn’t too happy to hear about it.
“For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh,” she tweeted after seeing the clip.
She followed that up with “Thank u, next,” which is already becoming iconic …
BECAUSE THAT’S THE NAME OF HER NEW SONG AND ALBUM!
Yep, Ariana just released her last album, Sweetener, in August, but she’s already working on her next one, which, as we said, will be titled Thank U, Next.
And last night, just a few minutes before Saturday Night Live began airing, she released the title track.
The shade, right?!
In the very first verse, she name drops four of her exes, including Pete, because the girl is simply not holding back.
Let’s just check it out in all its glory, OK? Here goes:
Thought I’d end up with Sean / But he wasn’t a match
Wrote some songs about Ricky / Now I listen and laugh
Even almost got married / And for Pete, I’m so thankful
Wish I could say “Thank you” to Malcolm / ‘Cause he was an angel
She sang that one of those exes “taught me love,” one “taught me patience,” and another “taught me pain.”
If she’s going in order, she means that Big Sean taught her love, Ricky Alvarez taught her patience, and Pete taught her pain.
She could mean something different, of course, and it’s definitely possible that Mac Miller was the one who taught her pain, considering his heartbreaking addiction and subsequent death.
But what’s neat about this song is that it isn’t a diss track at all.
As she explains it in the lyrics, “I’ve loved and I’ve lost, but that’s not what I see / So look what I got, look what you taught me.”
In the chorus, she sings “I’m so f-cking grateful for my ex,” which is really the whole vibe of this song.
Well, that, and getting into another relationship now — this time, one with herself.
After releasing the song, she hopped back on Twitter to discuss things with her fans, because she’s a doll like that.
According to her, this song contains “no drags…. no shade….. just love, gratitude, acceptance, honesty, forgiveness … and growth.”
We can’t wait to see what’s next from her!
Hard to believe that it was less than five months ago that Ariana Grande stunned fans by announcing her engagement to Pete Davidson.
Of course, saying the situation didn’t play out the way she expected would be putting it very, very mildly.
Ariana and Pete broke up unexpectedly last month, and from what it seems, the split was far from amicable.
Now, there are many perks to dating a comedian, chief among them, of course, is the fact that your relationship is sure to be filled with laughter.
But there are downsides, as well, particularly the fact that comics tend to mine the more painful aspects of their private lives for material, which means there’s a good chance that a difficult breakup will immediately become joke fodder.
So it’s not terribly surprising that a new promo for the upcoming episode of SNL finds Pete playing the news about his love life for laughs.
Standing alongside hosts Jonah Hill and musical guest Maggie Rogers, Davidson jokingly proposes to Rogers, who promptly shoots him down, an obvious reference to Davidson’s tendency to move very quickly in relationships — particularly when his partner is a well-known singer.
Take a look:
Pretty harmless stuff, if you ask us, and Davidson is clearly poking fun at himself more than he’s skewering Ariana.
Still, Grande was obviously not thrilled to find that her very recent breakup is already being played for laughs, and she made her feelings very clear with a pair of scathing tweets.
“For somebody who claims to hate relevancy [you] sure love clinging to it huh,” Grande wrote.
“Thank [you], next,” she added.
We can’t help but think “fame” would’ve worked better there than “relevancy.”
After all, who hates being relevant?
But we digress.
Needless to say, fans have overwhelmingly sided with Ariana, with the tweets attracting many references to the spillage of tea and state-sanctioned beheadings.
(We assume that’s what’s meant by the phrase “slaaaaaay queen!”)
And as the details of Pete and Ariana’s breakup are hard to come by, it’s impossible for us to say if it was appropriate for Pete to joke about the breakup so soon after the fact.
But we can say that if Ariana is this thin-skinned, it’s a safe bet that her relationship with a famously envelope-pushing comic was likely doomed from the start.
Again, this argument is null and void if it turns out that Pete precipitated the breakup with some sort of monstrous behavior, but if it was just a standard split, then Ari might have to just come to grips with the fact that the snarky sense of humor she previously found so endearing will now serve as a source of mild irritation.
And hey, if she wants to shoot back by claiming that all that talk about “big dick energy” was just her way of compensating for Pete’s micropenis, we’re 100 percent here for it.
Last month, we reported on the sad news that Hayden Panettiere has been drinking so heavily that family and friends are worried she’s putting her life in danger.
The latest reports about the actress not only confirm that she’s been partying hard in recent months, but also reveal the presence of a troubling new figure in her life.
According to Radar Online, Hayden is in a serious relationship with 34-year-old actor Brian Hickerson.
Friends and family first became concerned when Hickerson was photographed standing next to Panettiere while the actress was vomiting over a railing during a wild night out.
They became even more worried when he “joked” on Instagram about stealing Hayden’s credit card out of her wallet while she’s sleeping.
“They are deeply concerned,” says one insider, referring to Hayden’s family and friends.
“They do not approve. They are hoping that this is something that she is going to evolve from.”
The source adds that Hayden has been charmed by Hickerson and doesn’t see that she’s being taken for a ride by a skilled conman.
“A relationship isn’t helpful for either of them. He’s funny and charming and good-looking, but he’s not bringing out the best in her,” the source adds.
“Sometimes we all do what makes sense for the moment. And let’s hope that is what it is – a moment.”
The insider goes on to say that Hayden went through a difficult time just before meeting Hickerson, which made her especially vulnerable.
“She’s come through a lot of things, she’s been on hit shows, lived in a town that she fell out of love with and that was a difficult pocket of time, and she wanted to leave Nashville sooner,” added the source.
“The cumulative effect probably makes her feel now that she wants to take a break, enjoy life, have fun, and have some laughs.”
Adding to her stress is the fact that Hayden is a mom, but her daughter Kaya currently lives in Ukraine with her father.
Speaking with Radar, Hayden’s mother confirmed that she is wary of Hayden’s relationship but downplayed concerns about the actress’ drinking.
“You just never know what people want,” Lesley Vogel told the outlet.
“You don’t know if you can trust anyone. I don’t trust his intentions. People can use her.”
We wish Hayden all the best during this difficult time.
If you’re a fan of Jersey Shore, you had likely read all about it by this point.
Simply having knowledge of what went down this summer between Ronnie and his girlfriend/baby mama, Jen Harley, probably did not prepare you for what transpired on Thursday night.
Because… holy Hell. Things got ugly.
On the latest installment of this MTV hit, we witnessed Harley and Ronnie go at it after Ronnie threatened to leave the show because Jen was keeping his daughter, Ariana, away from him.
He was convinced to stick around by Pauly D and by a producer who actually appeared on camera, but he realized that something in this ugly back-and-forth with Harley had to give.
“I have to make a change for my daughter. We need some kind of guidelines and foundation to make sure that she’s all right at the end of the day,” he told his co-stars about heading to meet with a lawyer.
Ronnie’s friends obviously understood where he was coming from.
“Jen is controlling him and baiting him,” Snooki said at one point. “You can’t take someone’s baby away, like, that’s not okay.”
Ronnie agrees, that’s sort of the whole point here.
But he also remarks that he could see himself getting back together with Jen, prompting an all-time response by Pauly.
“You gotta be nuts! She was just holding a baby from you, that’s the beginning. You gotta stay away from this girl for a while,” The DJ yelled to his pal, adding:
“That’s crazy. You can’t reconcile with her, you can’t. At this point, you can’t anymore. Why would you want to be with somebody that would hold a baby from you and not tell you where it is?
“That’s unsafe. God forbid something happened to her, you wouldn’t know where the baby was. … You can’t be with someone like that. You’re better than that.”
(Is he, though? Discuss.)
While Ronnie’s gone, Jen comes knocking… with a friend by her side.
She demands to know where Ronnie is and doesn’t believe the cast when they claim to have no idea.
Harley alleges that last night, he went “on a f-cking rampage, texting me every name in the book” in over 300 messages.
(Yes, this did really happen. Click below for proof.)
“Obviously someone’s with him, a producer or …” Jen says, looking around the room.
At this mention, a producer actually interrupts, reminding Jen that they’d told her he’d be back at a specific time later and suggesting that she leave and return then.
This appears to blows up her ruse: Jen knew he wasn’t home when she traveled to the hotel. Busted!
“You guys are f-cked up! You guys are f-cking liars!” she cries out as she departs.
“That girl came to this room with an agenda, to tell her side of the story and paint this picture that Ronnie’s this animal,” Pauly says.
“Jen is gangster. She’s trying to play everybody. She’s not going to play me.”
But then $ hit REALLY gets crazy…
After Ronnie comes home and says he feels better after talking with an attorney, the group goes out to dinner — but he remains at the hotel, bracing himself for a confrontation with Jen.
As soon as she walks in… BOOM! It’s on.
“Ron! You’re texting me I’m a f-cking whore, I’m a liar, I’m a f-ckng cheater?” she screams.
“Calm down,” he replies.
“No. I’m not gonna calm down. I don’t want to hear your whole f-cking bullsh-t story. … You’re calling me a f-cking whore? Motherf-cker?”
And then it was Ronnie’s turn to lose it:
“You’re driving me crazy! All you do is use that kid as a f-cking pawn!””
Your response, Jen?
“You’re a f-cking psychopath. You’re a f-cking loser. You’re a piece of sh-t,” she yells… and then spits in his face.
(This is where we remind people that Jen and Ronnie were parents to a newborn girl at the time this was filmed.)
A security guard intervenes at this juncture, only for Jen to lunge at Ronnie and the picture to fade to black.
We’re left with the prophetic word: “I don’t give a f-ck. I’ll go to jail.”
And then, for the record, Harley did go to jail.
What do you think, viewers?
Was this the most explosive fight in the history of Jersey Shore?
Heck, in the history of reality television?
You can click on the video below and relive every vicious second now:
Donald Trump is finally tackling one of the major issues facing our country:
How Jimmy Fallon feels about the interview he conducted with the President back in September of 2016.
About a month before he stunned the world by getting elected Commander-in-Chief, Trump sat down across from Fallon on The Tonight Show.
But the host of this iconic late-night program didn’t press The Donald on any legitimate issues plaguing the nation or challenge his knowledge on any important subject.
Nope. Instead, Fallon asked about Trump’s infamous hair and even gave it a tussle.
The comedian was LAMBASTED on social media and across various circles for this behavior, with critics taking Fallon to task for simply joking around with Trump, for treating him as a funny and harmless and jovial person.
When, in fact, as has now been proved time and again, Trump was a threat to our Democracy.
Here. Take a look below to refresh your memory over what transpired about two years ago:
Shortly after, when faced with this critcism, Fallon scoffed.
“Have you seen my show?” he asked a reporter, implying that he’s known for lobbing soft balls at his guests and prides himself on NOT being hard-hitting.
“I’m never too hard on anyone,” he added.
This is true, and it did sort of raise an interesting debate about the role/responsibilities of a late-night talk show host.
But now that Fallon has seen the horrors of a Donald Trump Presidency, most notably the separation of kids from their parents at the border over immigration issues, the former Saturday Night Live cast members has expressed regret.
Fallon said in a recent interview that he he didn’t mean to “normalize [Trump] or to say I believe in his political beliefs” and that he feels badly about it.
And, naturally, this has made him the subject of an attack from the President:
Tweeted Trump on Monday morning:
“.@jimmyfallon is now whimpering to all that he did the famous “hair show” with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have “humanized” me-he is taking heat. He called & said “monster ratings.” Be a man Jimmy!”
Two things are notable about this Tweet:
- There are no typos! That’s incredible.
- Trump is very focused for some reason on how Fallon allegedly really did mess up his hair, as if this was a source of debate or contention.
As you can see above, Fallon has chosen to take the high road in response.
He isn’t Jimmy Kimmel or Stephen Colbert.
He has not made it this far by engaging in politics; and certainly not in tweaking the President in any way, shape or form.
Fallon has managed to make Jay Leno look polarizing by comparison.
Therefore, Fallon’s simple response to Trump baiting him is to simply say:
“In honor of the President’s tweet I’ll be making a donation to RAICES in his name.”
This is an organization in Texas dedicated to reuniting children with their mothers and/or father. It’s a great cause. We can’t fault Fallon to giving money to it obviously.
But a lot of Fallon’s core audience is comprised of Trump’s voting base.
It would at least be a little interesting to see how they would respond if Fallon and Trump actually went back and forth for a bit.
That isn’t Jimmy’s style, however.
And we can argue for weeks about whether it’s his responsibility.
All we know for certain is this:
Trump cares a lot more about a celebrity saying something negative about him than he cares about American citizens in Puerto Rico having electricity in their homes.
You can say many things about Selena Gomez.
You can say you don’t like her music because you’re entitled to that opinion.
You can say you she has bad taste in men because Justin Bieber has never treated her well.
You can say she makes poor decisions with her hairstyle at times.
But you cannot say what Stefano Gabbana just said about the singer, not if you want to avoid very deserved backlash from millions of people on social media.
The Italian designer, who co-founded the fashion label label Dolce & Gabbana, went out of his way on Instagram this week to attack Gomez.
In the comments of a photo on The Catwalk Italia’s Instagram account, Gabbana wrote the following alongside a collage of Selena picture:
È proprio brutta!!!
This translates, very simply and extremely rudely, to: She’s so ugly.
The insult was many things; unprovoked, cruel, sexist and objectively untrue.
And while Gomez has thus far taken the high road, refusing to even acknowledge Gabbana’s existence, her friends and fans online have been unable to show similar restraint.
“@stefanobabbana you’re tired and over. your homophobic, misogynistic, body-shaming existence will not thrive in 2018,” Tweeted 13 Reasons Why actor Tommy Dorfman, who plays Ryan Shaver in the Netflix drama.
“it is no longer tolerable or chic. please take many seats.”
And then there was this from a Gomez follower:
“Shame on you for online bullying. Doesn’t matter if 1 million people see it or 1 person, it’s bullying. It’s wrong.”
And then this from another Gomez follower, who kept it short and simple and supportive:
“We love this beautiful queen.”
Julia Michaels, a singer-songwriter and close friend of Selena’s tweeted:
“@selenagomez just here to tell you that you are one of the most beautiful women I know, inside and out. I love you always.”
This really is true.
While the merits of what Gabbana said are really beside the point, it might as well be pointed out while we’re here:
Selena Gomez is a very pretty young woman. Full stop. This statement really can’t be debated.
Over the years, Gabbana has bullied stars on social media numerous times, including Kate Mossand Victoria Beckham.
Most recently, he went after Kate Moss on the same Catwalk Italia Instagram page, dissing a Saint Laurent look she was wearing … just because.
In 2015, celebrities such as Elton John, Courtney Love and Ricky Martin boycotted the fashion brand over insensitive comments Dolce and Gabbana made about IVF and LGBTQ families.
Moreover, the brand released a $ 245 “#BoycottDolceGabbana” graphic T-shirt inspired by the negative response to First Lady Melania Trump wearing their designs.
In other words: it courts controversy like this.
So the best thing to do is what Selena has done, which is to totally and completely ignore the misguided and pathetic messenger.
This will be the last time we write about him.
Perhaps no star in the Teen Mom universe has generated more mixed feelings than Ryan Edwards.
When Ryan went to rehab last year, fans applauded his courage.
When he got out and immediately went back to drinking and making life miserable for his baby mama, Maci Bookout, viewers reacted with a mix of frustration and contempt.
But it seems one person who knows Ryan very well was never the slightest bit confused in his feelings toward the troubled 30-year-old.
Maci's husband, Taylor McKinney, flat-out doesn't like Ryan – and it seems he doesn't care who knows it.

Last month, it was revealed that Britney’s ex Kevin Federline has asked for more child support. He is the father of both of her amazing sons.
While Britney treasures her children and would do anything for them, a lot of people are wondering how her current, substantial child support payments are falling short.
Which led to Britney’s father meeting with Kevin’s attorney and demanding to know why Kevin needs more cash.
Reportedly, Britney Spears is pissed that K-Fed is grubbing after more cash.
Really, anyone who’s ever had to pay a bill in their life has some questions about a guy who says that $ 20,000 a month isn’t enough to pay for two kids who only live with him sometimes.
Now, it turns out that someone else is mad about it — her dad.
Jamie (not to be confused with Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney’s sister) is Britney’s father, and he apparently sat down with Kevin’s attorney.
TMZ has details on how that meeting went down, and it does not sound like anybody left the room satisfied.
According to TMZ‘s report, the meeting was set up last week, when Jamie received a letter from K-Fed’s attorney, asking for a sit-down, face-to-face meeting to discuss Kevin’s request for more child support.
Jamie had apparently already been suspicious of why Kevin might “need” more child support money each month. So it’s probably safe to say that he was wary.
It seems that Kevin’s attorney told Jamie at this meeting that, since Jayden and Sean Preston are now 11 and 12 respectively, attending to their needs and wants during his time with them had grown more expensive.
(More than $ 10,000 per month each, apparently)
As you might imagine, Jamie then reportedly asked what exactly the boys needed but Kevin currently couldn’t afford to give them.
Kevin’s attorney apparently couldn’t answer, but told Jamie that Kevin wanted to be able to take care of the boys “at Britney’s level.”
(First of all, nobody is on Britney’s level, so jot that down)
Jamie replied that Britney hasn’t found that her tween sons are suddenly more expensive to look after, and that she’s taking care of them just as she always has.
So … Jamie wasn’t seeing what had really changed.
TMZ‘s sources say that this is when Kevin’s lawyer started singing Britney’s praises and listing her recent successes.
Britney’s Vegas residency has come to an end, and she made bank.
Jamie replied that he didn’t see how Britney’s success suddenly made her sons more expensive to support.
In fact, he didn’t see how that could have any bearing on child support payments. The couple divorced nearly 11 years ago.
Jamie, still suspicious of Kevin’s use of the funds, then pointed out that Britney is not responsible for supporting Kevin Federline’s other children or other families — because Sean Preston and Jayden have four half-siblings.
Besides, Britney paid K-Fed $ 1.3 million when they divorced and paid him spousal support for years. Normally spousal support is intended to help people whose careers were harmed or abandoned for marriage.
It’s difficult to argue that Kevin Federline’s fame or career was in any way worsened by his marriage to one of the most famous pop stars on the planet.
It’s clear from this report that Jamie seems to believe that K-Fed is funneling some of the child support money to unintended purposes, perhaps to himself or to his other children and other families.
And so Jamie apparently believes that any further money would also be misused.
It is possible, however, that Kevin wants to treat his sons, and that he feels increasingly inadequate in the face of their mother, one of the most talented and successful women that the world has ever seen or ever will see.
If it comes down to a court battle rather than a “quiet” settlement, it’s likely that Kevin will be asked to account for how that money is spent on his sons.
In turn, Kevin’s attorney will likely argue that Britney wasn’t actively touring in 2007, and that her newfound success means that the child support agreement should be revisited.
But … if Kevin can’t adequately explain how $ 20,000 a month for two pre-teens isn’t enough, he may find it challenging to be awarded what he wants.
If you watched this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, then you know that Amber Portwood didn’t exactly come off looking great.
But amazingly, her tweets during the show proved even more damaging to her reputation!
The episode sees Amber’s baby daddy, Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina, voicing some of the same criticisms that fans have been directing at Amber in recent months.
Like so many of the show’s viewers, Gary and Kristina apparently feel that Amber should’ve spent more time looking into Andrew Glennon’s sketchy past before she started dating him seriously and got pregnant with his baby.
Not only that, they take issue with Amber not seeing her daughter for months and using her depression as a justification–despite the fact that she was apparently mentally healthy enough to begin dating Glennon.
Maybe Amber was depressed, and maybe too much is being made of Glennon’s past, but it’s not hard to see why a father and stepmother might be concerned by the situation.
And Gary voiced those concerns at length in the episode:
“I don’t know what skeletons he has in his closet, but honestly, she should have waited,” he said to Kristina.
“She should have taken more time with Leah and focused on her responsibility as being a mother than jumping into a relationship. Well, she was, like, ‘I was mourning.’ I know that you’re sad after breaking up with someone — I get it.”
“But your daughter can bring you just as much happiness,” Kristina interjected.
Not surprisingly, Gary agreed:
“From day one I’ve been a parent! From day one my issues never came in and stopped me from being a dad, you know?” he continued.
“I don’t have the option to not be a parent, but you can go off and do what you want to do. I mean, that would be f–king awesome! You know? And you’re OK with it because you’re used to it. But you know, there’s one person that’s not OK with it, and that’s Leah.”
From there, Kristina spiked the football by recounting a recent exchange with Leah:
“It’s just like she told me, you know? ‘Matt was in the picture. Mommy broke up with Matt. Mommy don’t come around then because she’s too depressed,'” she recalled.
“But then, all of a sudden, she brings over Andrew and she says: ‘Well Kristina, if she was too depressed to see me, she wasn’t too depressed to find a new man?’ And, you know, what do I say to that?”
Gary then recalled a period of time in which Leah was so depressed by her mother’s absence that she did nothing but sleep.
“Let’s adopt Leah,” Kristina proposed.
“I’m with you,” Gary replied.
Not surprisingly, Amber had much to say about the situation on social media:
“Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina tonight talking sh!t about me! It must be hard making money off of me! Being such a bad mom and all. Where would they be?” she tweeted.
“Wait..in a 1 bedroom shack in the ghetto of Anderson where he was before I got out and the show came back on!! Ignorant!”
And if you thought she’d stop there, you don’t know Amber:
“[Kristina] broke up her family for money and tv!” Amber tweeted, targeting Gary’s wife.
“Her husband got a restraining order on her cheating @ss with multiple people and then cheated with Gary! What about her daughter? Straight out of Gary’s mouth!!”
“Restraining order to keep my child from filming,” Kristina replied.
“I am an active mother to my children so quit hating. I’ve never stepped on your toes as a mother nor will I ever. I care for Leah when she is in our care. Love don’t hate.”
Then things got even more bizarre when Farrah Abraham’s father, Michael, interjected:
“Kristina stay strong. DO NOT LET ANYONE BULLY you. You’re the real proven mother figure here,” Michael tweeted.
“Gary has always been the rock solid father protecting his children with you in full support and I’m thankful to God for both of you – the world knows the truth and that’s pure FACT.”
We’d say this situation can’t get any weirder, but Michael Abraham just got involved, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, watch Teen Mom OG online to get caught up on all of this season’s intense drama.
