Amber Portwood Admits She Wasn’t Sober on Marriage Boot Camp!

If you watched Amber Portwood on Marriage Boot Camp Friday night, then you know that it really did not seem to be a good time for her.

She was weird, loud, aggressive … so how she usually is, only way worse.

She picked fights with anyone and everyone, no reason needed, and she just had this quality about her that was alarming and upsetting and just very not good.

And now we know why!

On Friday morning, presumably once she realized how much attention her behavior on the show would receive, she hopped on Twitter to send a special message to her followers.

“No matter what struggles I went through a year ago on MBC..I’m now happy, healthy and sober,” she wrote.

“The struggles & anger I went through are real & I’m happy to have ended such a horrific time in my life! Ready to live life clear headed and full of love.”

“The future is finally bright,” she added.

There’s quite a bit to unpack here, but the most notable thing is that she says she’s “now happy, healthy and sober,” implying that when she was filming the show, she wasn’t any of those things.

This is the first time she’s admitted to not sticking with her sobriety, because being sober is a very big deal for her.

She once said that in early seasons of Teen Mom, we literally never saw her when she wasn’t on some sort of substance — even when we saw her go to rehab.

Back in those days, she had a habit of taking all kinds of pills, primarily, and her drug problem was so bad that when she was in prison, she opted for a longer sentence instead of going to rehab.

She said she believed that was the only way she could truly overcome her addiction.

In the years after her release from prison, she made a big deal out of her sobriety, and for a while, it did seem like she was doing well.

Then there was a troubling Teen Mom episode when we saw her drinking with Matt Baier — at the time, she said it was OK for her to drink because she’d never been an alcoholic.

Unfortunately, that’s not quite how addiction works.

She continued to drink for a good long while with Matt, but she always got very upset whenever anyone suggested that it would be a good idea for her to stay away from all substances, not just the specific ones she preferred in the height of her addiction.

Even in the current season, she got furious when Matt suggested she wasn’t sober.

But for us viewers, it’s been clear for a while now that something hasn’t been quite right with her, and the episode of Marriage Boot Camp really drove that home.

And it looks like now we know what the issue is — or a big part of it anyway.

After making that tweet about her sobriety, someone asked her to clarify what she was talking about, and she explained that she “was drinking heavily on top of my bipolar and borderline medication.”

“Obviously something you shouldn’t do with medications like that,” she added. “However it happened and I went through hard times in order to be truly happy finally.”

It’s nice that she’s being honest about what caused her bizarre behavior on Marriage Boot Camp, but it’s also pretty terrifying.

We obviously don’t know what medications she’s taking, but mixing alcohol with medications can be extremely dangerous — she’s lucky that some embarrassing outbursts were all that happened.

Another thing though is her pregnancy. The timeline here is pretty tight, and deeply concerning.

Judging by the dates she’s given us, she likely got pregnant sometime in August — Marriage Boot Camp was filmed towards the end of June.

That means she had around a month to a month and a half to get off her meds and to get her drinking under control.

Oh, and one more issue: now that we’re seeing what Amber was like while filming this show, we know what she was like when Andrew Glennon became attracted to her.

Is there one happy thing about this whole situation? At all? Even just one tiny little thing?


Amber Portwood: FLIPS OUT on Marriage Boot Camp! Watch!

Amber Portwood has never been known as the most rational of the Teen Moms.

Sure, she might look downright level-headed compared to the likes of Jenelle Evans or Farrah Abraham or any of the losers that she's dated in recent years, but deep down, Amber is a violent nutjob.

And she reminded us of that fact in a big way recently.

You see, back when Amber was still engaged to Matt Baier, the couple appeared on We TV's Marriage Boot Camp.

We knew it didn't end well for them (Matt fled for Vegas before filming was finished, and Amber got pregnant by Andrew Glennon, a producer on the show.), but until today, we didn't know just how ugly things got.

In a preview clip released this morning, we see Amber absolutely lose it on rapper Jim Jones, who had the audacity to state that maybe "reality TV star" isn't the most promising career path.

“Especially when you look at the whole overall scheme of reality TV, it’s pretty much bullsh-t to make some money,” Jones said in a conversation that had nothing to do with Portwood.

This simple and 100 percent true statement was enough to make Amber fly off the handle:

"Get the f-ck out of her. Let me tell you something right now," Portwood interrupted.

"I've been on reality television for 10 f-cking years. I've been real since day one. That's not true. Not all reality television stars are like that."

She went to attack Jones' fiancee, Chrissy Lampkin, as well as pretty much the entire cast.

It's anyone's guess as to why Amber was even more temperamental than usual, but this may serve as confirmation of Brandi Glanville's claims.

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star says that while Amber claimed to be sober during filming, she often far from it.

Kylie Jenner: Why She Turned Down Travis Scott’s Marriage Proposal

A number of fans have wondered if, now that Travis and Kylie have welcomed their baby girl, the two will make things official by getting engaged.

True, Kylie’s only 20 and they haven’t even been dating for a year, but they have a child together and both seem committed to this relationship.

Now that Travis has reportedly proposed to Kylie only for her to shoot it down, those same fans are wondering: why?

HollywoodLife reports that Kylie isn’t ready to marry Travis, as he found out to his chagrin on their trip to Miami.

“When Kylie and Travis were on their trip he spontaneously asked her to marry him, but she turned him down, for now.”

Oh, that sounds incredibly awkward.

But she’s reportedly very happy with him and even open to marriage … eventually.

“Kylie definitely wants to marry Travis, but she also really loves how things are the way they are.”

This may come as a surprise, since Kylie decided to have his baby, but she apparently has some realistic and mature ideas about 

“She knows she rushed into this relationship, so she’s trying to slow it all down and enjoy every single stage.”

That sounds healthy. Again, they’ve been dating for less than one year.

Per this report, Kylie’s getting some much-needed advice from her family members.

She’s always been said to be particularly close with Khloe.

“Plus, she gets lots of guidance from Khloe [Kardashian] who is encouraging her to wait on the whole wedding thing.”

Kylie and Khloe have a special bond, perhaps in part because they both once thought of themselves as “ugly ducklings” (though neither were ever ugly) until their radical body transformations.

But all of Kylie’s sisters are apparently quick to give her good advice.

“But it’s not just Khloe, all of Kylie’s sisters are encouraging her to take her time as much as she can.”

This doesn’t necessarily mean that Kylie’s sisters believe that Travis Scott is some sort of deceiver who’s only in this for easy sex and an easier lifestyle thanks to Kylie’s money.

First of all, we know that Travis Scott is not a deadbeat dad.

We saw his eyes glisten with excitement as he attended multiple appointments for Kylie as she saw doctors and went through ultrasounds.

But someone doesn’t have to be a schemer for a rushed marriage to be a bad idea.

In general, rushing into marriage is a recipe for disaster.

The only time that it’s smart is if there are legal reasons (someone needs a Green Card, someone needs to not be compelled to testify against the other in a court of law, someone needs health insurance) … or perhaps if a reality series is paying you enough.

Again, and we cannot emphasize this enough, but extrapolating from Stormi Webster’s February 1st birth date, Kylie and Travis had been dating for perhaps one month when Kylie conceived.

Maybe they would still be together even if they hadn’t brought another human being into the world — Kylie loves with her whole heart.

But getting engaged to someone you’ve effectively just met is a recipe for disaster.

That said, there’s no reason for Travis and Kylie to not continue their happy and healthy relationship.

You don’t need a piece of paper or a special ring to be a family.

And, of course, no delay precludes them from getting married in the future. When Kylie feels that the time is right.

If anything, this story about Kylie shooting down Travis’ proposal is a reminder to everyone to not do those public proposals.

Travis was wise enough to not do this alleged proposal over a livestream, of course.

But if you propose in public, you should be absolutely certain (as in, talk about it) that the other person wants to get married.

Otherwise, they either say yes out of nervousness and guilt because of their audience … or say no and leave you both feeling incredibly embarrassed and awkward.

We wish Kylie and Travis the best of luck for whatever becomes of their relationship.


Safaree Samuels Offered Porn Roles, Marriage Proposals After Nudes Leak

Safaree Samuels has a career, to be sure. But his most talked about accomplishments have been dating Nicki Minaj and getting a beatdown from Meek Mills. Until now, that is.

On February 25th, Safaree Samuels’ nudes leaked and the internet lost its mind. People were impressed, to say the least.

In fact, people were so impressed that he’s reportedly been offered a porn role. Will he accept?

HollywoodLife reports that their source describes Safaree’s reaction to his leaked nudes and the response that they’ve garnered.

Their source says:

“Safaree is shocked that his phone has been blowing up since the penis pics leaked.”

We imagine that the leaks themselves came as a shock.

The fact that they got attention … should not.

“He has been getting marriage proposals, job offers, and he even has a ton of new online haters and trolls trying to diss him since the pics leaked.”

That last part is hilarious, and should serve as a reminder that everyone gets hate online.

The job offer bit is funny, as seeing somebody’s nudes should really only make you want to hire them for certain, very specific things. (We’ll get to that in a moment)

The marriage proposals thing is the best part. Weird, to be sure, but funny.

Safaree Samuels 01

(This photo is just one of many hilarious fan reactions to seeing Safaree Samuels in all his nude glory; you can see this and others below)

Safaree Samuels apparently doesn’t think that the fame will last.

“He thinks everyone will forget about the pics soon.”

Well, it’s true that stories come and go.

(He should really be working to capitalize on this while he has his chance — even if it’s just with music or some sort of social media endorsement deal)

“But if they open a few doors for him, then he is cool with that too.”

He’ll need to act quickly before those doors close.

As we mentioned, he’s gotten job offers.

Specifically, he’s reportedly been offered a role in pornography. Since, you know, he seems to be equipped for the job — and his celebrity status and viral nudes would be free publicity.

“He has never considered doing porn until now.”

That’s interesting — even if he hadn’t fantasized about it, we’re surprised that no one who has seen him naked has at least jokingly suggested it to him.

Most celebrities turn down porn offers — even most Z-list reality stars — but this report claims that Safaree might at least consider it.

“While his heart is in hip-hop, Safaree considers himself a businessman first and if the money is right, he is open to any opportunities that come his way.”

According to another of HollywoodLife‘s sources, Nicki Minaj reportedly wouldn’t be surprised if Safaree leaked the photos himself.

It’s true that the nudes seem to have given him a bit of a boost and perhaps even brought in some new fans.

Which is in a stark contrast to what happens to so many female celebrities when their nudes are leaked.

It’s never okay to leak a star’s nudes, obviously — or anyone else’s. It’s a horrible violation of them and often used as blackmail, revenge, or an intimidation tactic. Sometimes it’s even a hate crime.

Many women — stars as famous as Jennifer Lawrence — have had nudes leak. Tragically, the public response often takes the form of slut-shaming.

Some monsters have had the audacity to suggest that the fault is theirs for having taken the photos in the first place, rather than on the despicable cowards who hacked and distributed the images.

It’s nice to see that Safaree isn’t experiencing nearly so much of this, but sad that sexism still makes people malign women for daring to have a body.

But … will Safaree do porn?

Perhaps Safaree’s decision will come down to whether it will help or hurt his brand.

Few people become sex workers lightly. There’s nothing inherently wrong with sex work, whether one’s a stripper or starring in porn or engaged in prostitution. But there’s an unfair stigma attached to each.

Safaree might find that he’ll get backlash for engaging in porn and ruin his career.

On the other hand … he might just gain more fans than he’s ever had before.

Just look at how much Twitter loves him after seeing his nudes:


Joy-Anna Duggar Gives Birth: Did She REALLY Get Pregnant Before Marriage?!

Earlier today, the world learned Joy-Anna Duggar has welcomed her first child, a boy named Gideon.

Fans were mostly congratulatory in their response to the news, but perhaps inevitably, a scandal that the Duggars would prefer to forget about reared its ugly head in the wake of the announcement.

As you may recall, when Joy first announced that she was expecting her first child, many questioned her claims about her date of conception.

Joy claimed that she got pregnant during her honeymoon, but fans had their doubts.

Rumors of a “shotgun wedding” were everywhere during Joy’s pregnancy, and many believed the truth would come out when the child arrived.

But now, little Gideon has entered the world, and the debate rages on:

Did Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth violate her family’s strict courtship rules?

As you probably know, Duggars are permitted virtually zero physical contact with the opposite sex prior to marriage.

At this point, Jim Bob and Michelle are almost as well-known for their hard-line stance against premarital sex as for the massive size of their brood.

Duggars who have yet to say “I do” are not allowed to kiss, be alone together, or hold hands for more than a few seconds.

Needless to say, the family’s wholesome reputation would take quite a hit if it turned out that Joy and Austin went so far beyond the guidelines as to sire a child before their wedding.

So while the idea of Joy-Anna lying about the date of her conception may sound absurd, it’s not hard to see why she might be motivated to do so.

Conspiracy theorists were convinced that Joy’s lie would be exposed when her baby arrived well ahead of schedule.

Tabloids went so far as to consult with doctors, many of whom examined photos and concluded that Joy was further along than she claimed to be.

And yet, today, little Gideon entered the world 39 weeks after his parents were married.

Which means in all likelihood, Joy got pregnant in late May or early June of 2016.

Her wedding was held on May 26.

So why aren’t the Duggars doing an online victory lap today?

Well, there are several reasons for that.

The first, and most obvious is that it would be coarse and crass to use the birth of a child as a “told you so moment.”

They deserve credit for taking the high road in not doing so.

On top of that, the family policy toward gossip is simply not to address it publicly.

Whether the news is good, bad, or neutral, if the announcement didn’t come directly from the Duggars, it’s a safe bet the Duggars won’t talk about it.

The third reason why you’ll likely never hear a word from the Duggars on the issue of Joy’s conception date is simple:

According to those who know them best, the Duggars simply want this mess to go away.

The fact remains that Joy-Anna and Austin did confess to breaking courtship rules, and Joy-Anna giving birth near her due date doesn’t definitively prove that she didn’t get pregnant a few days earlier than she would have us believe.

Despite all of that, the Duggars are no doubt conscious of the fact that they scored a minor victory over their detractors today,

But they’re probably also aware that to gloat would be to tempt their critics to do some digging.

Tarek El Moussa: Fake News Ruined My Marriage!

Reportedly, Tarek El Moussa is dating a lingerie model. But right now, he’s focused on talking about his show and his family and his former marriage.

And he points the finger at one factor that he believes causes problems for him now and may have even led to his divorce:

Fake news.

In December of 2016, Tarek and Christina El Moussa announced their split.

This was crushing news for fans of the couple and of their series, Flip or Flop.

The context for their split, however, was positively alarming.

The two of them separated after an insane gun incident in which Tarek stormed off into the woods after the couple got into an argument.

At the time, there was a genuine fear that Tarek might harm himself. Fearing the unthinkable, Christina called the police.

Tarek would later say that he brought the gun with him to fend of wild animals if need be, but it was a frightening incident and, afterwards, they decided that it would be best for themselves and their children if they parted ways.

Speaking to Fox News, Tarek El Moussa blames “fake news” for his marital troubles. Not entirely, but … you’ll see.

He starts off by speaking about divorce in general.

“Like any couple that’s getting divorced it’s very, very difficult obviously.”

There are easy, amicable divorces in this world, but they’re rare. A divorce that both partners enjoy is usually the result of a loveless-from-the-start marriage where the two either have so much or so little money that they refuse to fight over it.

He acknowledges that divorce is hardly unique.

“Half of the nation is divorced [but] because of who were are, being on TV, and people knowing who we are, it was a very public divorce.”

Clearly, that’s beyond the scope of most people’s divorce experiences.

And he emphasizes that fans are still consuming updates on how things are going.

“And it’s still a very public divorce.”

Clearly — he’s talking about it, and we’re all listening.

After setting up the context, he goes on to say that his experience is worse since he’s famous.

“So I would say it has been a lot more difficult than it would have been if it was private.”

You have to worry about what people will think or what they might be saying, every step of the way. Then there are the concerns that your career might get derailed.

“Obviously, if you’re on TV, you’re in the public so our private life is completely open.”

More or less, sure.

“Everybody knows everything about us.”

He then says that it was “very frustrating” to hear a lot of what he refers to as “fake news” about himself and his marriage.

And that goes for his divorce and or his personal life.

“Fake News” is one of those buzzwords that’s been jumbled from its original usage.

When it first rose to prominence in 2016, it referred to news stories that were deliberately fabricated by those reporting it — stuff about Illuminati-style conspiracies.

But then, like a babbling toddler repeating words he’d just heard, Donald Trump used the word to describe legitimate news reporting that he just doesn’t happen to like. That opened up floodgates and has continued to have global consequences.

In the case of celebrities like the El Moussas, however, there is sometimes genuinely fake news.

That should not be confused with gossip stories that discuss rumors, however. Just saying.

Tarek goes on to acknowledge that, despite the pitfalls of fame, the public’s awareness of their lives contributes to Flip or Flop‘s success.

“Today, there’s like a hundred house flipping shows and I truly believe what makes our show successful is our dynamic as investors and as a family.”


“When we first came on the air we were really young. We were a young couple that had everything we had on the line.”

And he thinks that this translated through the screen.

“I think… people were able to read that through the screen and they’ve watched us grow as a family. They’ve seen us have children and raise our children and move houses.”

It arguably helped change the landscape of this type of show.

“And it’s just been kind of not only a TV show about flipping houses, it’s been a TV show about our lives as well.”


Kendra Wilkinson Blasts “Fake” News, Insists Marriage is in Trouble

Here is something you really don’t see very often:

A celebrity has taken to Instagram in order to shoot down a rumor that her relationship is happy and healthy.

Indeed, Kendra Wilkinson is insisting that her marriage to Hank Baskett really is in trouble, despite what you may occasionally read on the Internet.

The former Playboy centerfold and the ex-NFL wide receiver have been through a lot over the years, as documented on the awful reality show Kendra on Top.

Most notably, the couple has been forced to deal with the fact that Baskett received a hand job from transgender model Ava London in 2014.

Baskett himself has admitted as much, confessing that he put his family in a “bad situation” via this scandalous fondling.

Hank and Kendra proceeded to milk this controversy for every ratings ounce they possibly could, using it as the basis for one season after another of their aforementioned reality series.

In June of 2016, however, they celebrated seven years of marriage and said they were happier than ever together.

But now Kendra is actually the person claiming this isn’t the case.

The mother of two shared a tabloid story on social media last night that accused her of “faking marriage problems” for TV.

As you can see below, this article alleges that Hank and Kendra are trying to convince WEtv to pick up Kendra on Top for Season 7 by conjuring up marital issues that do not exist.

This is why Kendra recently (and randomly) wrote that 2018 has already been the hardest year of her life, according to the magazine.

kendra article

Somehow more angry that she’d be accused of being a liar than of having a healthy romance, Wilkinson jumped ALL OVER this allegation. 

“how do u fake marital problems? makes absolutely no sense,” she wrote on Instagram to open a lengthy rebuttal to this charge.

(Must we even mention how ridiculous this question is? An unofficial survey has found that 99.9999% of all drama on reality television is manufactured, scripted and phony.)

“Yes, we are having issues,” Kendra added… and she was far from done.

“My job has been reality tv for 13 years,” she said as her third bullet point and continuing:

“My show was a comedy and light hearted til sad times happened then we had to change my show from comedy to drama. Not what i wanted but was a part of my journey and story.”

Kendra, of course, rose to fame as one of Hugh Henfer’s girlfriends on E’s The Girls Next Door.

She has since settled down with Baskett, but really wants everyone to know that it hasn’t been easy.

“These issues Hank n I are having in our home which we are tryin to hard to over come, everyone knows about, including producers and network, friends and family,” she writes.

Her sixth point in this list?

My job is reality TV and I love my job unfortunately these issues at home are affecting my decisions cuz the last thing i want to do is hurt Hank.

Yes, the very last thing, people.

This is why she’s telling the world how many problems she has at home with him.

(Another point: her job is to film a reality TV show about her life, therefore she clearly needs there to be drama in her life, or there’s no job. Self-owned much, Kendra?!?)

“I hope to get back to the fun Kendra you all know. That’s all i want n aim for. I hate drama!!!” Wilkinson wrote, as assume with a straight face somehow, toward the end of her post.

She then concluded:

Thank you all for your support and understanding me at this time. I’ve been in a lot of therapy lately n hope all gets resolved for me, Hank,kids and even for TV. Lol.

Hank and Kendra wed in 2009 and have welcomed two children together, son Hank IV, 8, and daughter Alijah, 3.

For their sake, we’d say we hope their parents work things out.

But for the sake of ratings, their mother would apparently say the opposite.
