The holidays are just about to wrap up now — and not a moment too soon, right?

Sure, it's fun to spend time with family and sing songs and give gifts, but all that can also be exhausting.

But you know what will never be exhausting? Creeping on the Teen Mom crew and appreciating all their precious families!

Let's get to it!

1. Maci’s Kids!

Well, they didn’t stay cozied up the whole time — they did head out to see Santa!

3. Christmas at Ryan’s

Though little Bentley obviously had some fun with his mom, he also spent some holiday time with his father, Ryan, and his stepmom, Mackenzie. Who, by the way, is just like 11 years older than him. Weird!

4. Sending Love from Indiana

Amber recently opened up about how her depression kept her from seeing her daughter, Leah, for months, but it looks like they were able to spend some quality time together for Christmas!

5. Meanwhile in Michigan …

Catelynn is still in rehab, but Tyler was able to make their daughter’s Christmas special anyway! Although he said that “This is the first Christmas without Cate since I was 14” and that “it’s a little disheartening,” the bright side is that he gets to see “this little cutie open some presents & it instantly puts the spirit right back in me! Merry Christmas everyone!”

6. More Santa!

Even in the middle of what really appears to be some sort of breakdown, Farrah managed to take Sophia to visit Santa!

Teen Mom: Does MTV Force Cast Members to Get Pregnant?!

It’s been such an amazing time for Teen Mom gossip lately, hasn’t it?

We’ve had pregnancy announcements, fights between cast members, balloon stabbings, hate crimes …

For those of us who hold this trashy little show close to our hearts, it’s been a wild and wonderful ride.

And you know the drama hasn’t reached a conclusion yet!

Today — or right now, we should say, since who knows what could happen with these people as the day goes on — we’re going to be talking about Farrah Abraham and her recent firing.

Or, sorry, her “fake firing.”

The whole fiasco began on Monday. That night, she was scheduled to do another adult livestream, a special Halloween one where she was supposed to do butt stuff.

She did log onto the livestream, but nothing sexy happened. Instead, she just ranted about how she’d been fired by MTV earlier in the day.

Yep, for the second time, Farrah was let go from Teen Mom for doing things in the adult industry.

Or, as she explained it, she was fired “because as a Business Mogul I act like an adult and part take in adult promotions and activities that other adults do for FREE or in private.”

“Sad such a phenomenal show will no longer have its biggest talent on the show because of women hating, sex shaming, hate crimes, selfish, Weinstein company power trip behaviors against a professional hard working, honest mother,” she added.

Things turned out to be a little more complicated than that though — sources involved in production claimed that in addition to the porn, Farrah is also just really unlikable.

Fans of the show don’t like her, the people who make the show don’t like her … and not in a fun, scandalous way that would make great television, either.

And then things got even more complicated when Farrah explained in a video she shared on her YouTube account that, as it turns out, she actually wasn’t fired.

Instead, certain “accomplists” — Farrah-speak for “accomplices” — just pretended to fire her “for the gain of your own press.”

We’re still not sure what exactly is happening, but it’s all very intense.

And it’s getting even more intense, because Simon Saran is joining Farrah in calling out the people behind the magic of Teen Mom.

According to Simon, the producers of the show are “very controlling individuals,” and that’s one of the reasons why he quit the show after his Being Simon special aired.

“The reason why I also quit,” he explains in an interview with Radar Online, “because producer Morgan J. Freeman hated the fact that I was successful.”

“I didn’t agree with how he went about treating people and putting them in harm’s way.”

He also said that Freeman “provides cast members with drugs, forces them to have kids and bribes them with bonuses to have strange men move in with them.”

This isn’t the first time he’s made such accusations — far from it.

He’s slammed the cast and crew of Teen Mom time and time again: he’s claimed that the show’s producers supplied Ryan Edwards with drugs last season, for example.

And he’s not done, either.

He also made some pretty harsh allegations over on Twitter, where he wrote that another reason he quit the show “was because of the racist comments” producers made to him.

He then called Teen Mom as “The show that promotes 50 year old naked men on book covers and 6 years olds in the same segments,” referring to Matt Baier and Amber Portwood’s segments last season.

Later he touched on Amber’s recent pregnancy news, writing “Poor Amber had to get knocked up for Morgan’s financial gain! How sad! It’s like a breeding mill over at #TeenMomOG.”

He clarified “In no means was this to attack Amber, I feel bad actually for what some of these people go through to satisfy Morgan’s needs.”

“I don’t hate any of the girls,” he added. “A reality check once in a while never hurt. I give Farrah them all the time. Even she has a lot to learn.”

So there’s a lot to unpack here, right?

He’s saying that the show’s producers actually force the moms to have more children, which … how?

A popular rumor for years has been that the moms receive a “bonus” when they have additional children, but that’s never been confirmed.

Besides that extra incentive, it’s hard to imagine how anyone could force pregnancies on the cast members.

Maybe Simon knows something we don’t, but it’s probably safer to say that he’s just going along with Farrah’s insane trashing of anything and anyone having to do with the show.

For what it’s worth, Kailyn Lowry has come forward to deny the claims they’ve been making.

“I’ve never, ever experienced any of those things with our production crews,” she said in a statement to Radar. “I have a great relationship with a lot of the crew.”

The plot thickens!


Outback Steakhouse: We Are Not Members of the Illuminati! Sheesh!

Outback Steakhouse is known for providing mediocre, high-calorie fare to diners interested in red meat and/or a lot of fried food items.

But the chain has now been forced to address rumors that it’s also part of a mysterious religious organization known as the Illuminati.


For those understandably unaware, the Illuminati is a secret society that supposedly came into existence way back in 1776 in Bolivia.

The group’s goals at the time were to oppose superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life and various abuses of state power. Which may very well have been the case when it was formed.

At this point, however, it’s unclear whether the Illuminati even exists.

Over the past decade or so, chatter around the Illuminati has centered on its alleged aim of controlling world affairs and masterminding events around the globe.

There’s no real evidence this is going on, of course – and there’s definitely no evidence that stars such as Beyonce and Kanye West are part of the Illuminati, despite many random rumors over the years that have connected the artists to the organization.

So… where does Outback Steakhouse fit into such talk?

Good question!

Illuminati image

Such seemingly ridiculous fervor got started this month when a Twitter user connected the locations of Outback Steakhouses in Arizona, Georgia, and Illinois… as well as several other states.

The result of these connections, when drawn on a map, created a unique star shape, otherwise known as a pentagram.

This shape has some associations with witchcraft, although it has its origins in ancient Greece. Blah, blah, blah, you’re likely thinking.

However, the mere appearance of the pentagram set Twitter ablaze with suggestions of Satanic worship and questions over whether these locations were plotted specifically to create the shape that is so often connected to the Illuminati.

Check out the map that went viral below:

Crazy, right?

Not even worth acknowledging, right?

Wrong. This is the Internet. Things spread quickly and it doesn’t take much to soil an establishment’s reputation.

Therefore, in response to an inquiry from The Daily Dot, Outback actually released a statement that clapped back against all talk of Illuminati associations.

“No plans, other than to bring bold steaks and Bloomin’ Onions to our guests!” the chain said in a Twitter statement, which didn’t exactly quiet the critics who still think Outback is up to something shady.

Could Outback be making bold steaks and Bloomin’ Onions and ALSO be teaming up with a shadowy group of villains dead set on world domination?

It could.


Justin Bieber Cancels Tour Because of Religious Beliefs, Screws Over Crew Members

If you’re a true Belieber, then by now, you’ve no doubt heard the disheartening news.

Justin Bieber has canceled the remaining dates on his “Purpose” tour, leaving tens of thousands of fans gravely disappointed.

Reps for the Biebs claim he was simply too tired to carry on, and that excuse shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

Bieber has cited exhaustion for canceling numerous events in the past, usually letting a whole lot of fans down in the process.

Many on social media have been quite vocal in their curiosity over just what the hell is making a seemingly healthy 23-year-old so damn tired all the time.

But now, it looks as though JB called off the tour not for reasons having to do with his body … but rather due to a crisis of the soul, girl.

Yes, TMZ is reporting that Justin has found Jesus, and Jesus … doesn’t like arena shows?

We’re not really sure, but sources close to Justin say his involvement with the Hillsong Church led the singer to decision that he should cancel the remaining 14 stops on his tour.

It’s important to note that those same sources insist Hillsong leader Carl Lentz did not encourage Justin to cancel the dates.

Unfortunately, it seems Bieber is getting his signals crossed, as canceling the tour is probably no what J.C. would’ve done.

You see, it’s not just the fans Bieber is letting down, but his dozens of crew members who now find themselves unexpectedly out of a job.

TMZ says the crew is “incredibly pissed off at him,” as many were living paycheck-to-paycheck and now have to worry about their immediate financial futures.

According to the site, anonymous crew members are scoffing at the idea that this is part of some spiritual awakening for Justin.

Instead, that say it’s just more of the bratty behavior that he’s been known for for years.

Bieber has yet to speak out on the matter directly.

He’s probably too tired.

Or he’s in church.

Whatever his excuse for being lame is these days, that’s what’s going on.


Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood Season 4 Episode 1 Recap: New Cast Members, Same Drama

They’re back!

After what seemed like an eternity, the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood crew made a triumphant return to TV screens, and boy, there was a lot of drama. 

On Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood Season 4 Episode 1, Keyshia Cole joined the cast and had some upsetting things to report about her estranged husband, while some of the other stars made some significant changes to their lives. 

Let’s get to it. 

The biggest shocker of all was that Keyshia was a full-fledged regular on the series. She’s an excellent singer, so we’re glad we can watch her on a weekly basis. 

“It’s been a long journey. We about to put out the album and we’re going on a new tour,” she explains in a confessional. 

Talk quickly changed to Keyshia’s failed relationship with Daniel “Booby” Gibson, but she was surprisingly positive about reigniting the spark between them. 

The shocking thing was that Keyshia did not blame him for their split, and revealed that they were still living under the same roof. She also complimented him on being a great father to their son. 

Will they be able to fix their relationship? They do seem cute, and it’s certainly an interesting hook for Keyshia. 

Meanwhile, Hazel-E was forced to open up about why she has been missing from social events. 

“I was caught up in relationship drama with Mr. Katt Williams, but don’t get it twisted the comeback is real,” she says.

She then went on to reveal that she’s no longer with Katt, and has traded him in for someone who is ten years younger than her. 

That seems to be the trend these days, so go Hazel-E!

Talk turned to Hazel-E wanting to invite Nikki, Teairra, Moniece, and Masika to an event of hers. She was still not on good terms with Masika but felt it was time to fix things. 

Elsewhere, we got to find out that “a lot has changed” for Safaree Samuels. For a start, he’s in a brand new relationship with Nikki Baby. 

Secondly, he’s funnier than ever before. He mingled with Booby and Fizz, and they got talking about his new relationship. 

Safaree then said that Keyshia’s new song made it evident her relationship with Booby was on the rocks. 

“I could definitely relate bro. I could relate to being in a public breakup in front of the world and having songs written about me,” Safaree says, clearly making a reference to himself and Nicki Minaj not being a thing. 

At Hazel-E’s big event, Nikki shows up, and the other women are not impressed by her being invited. 

Moniece says, “Does she ever wear anything other than ‘I’m open for business’ outfits?”

Nikki should probably get ointment for that huge BURN. 

Hazel made a grand entrance in a helicopter and got ready to perform, but Masika started yelling at the stage. 

A drink was hurled at Hazel, and her security had to get involved to tell the women to shut the hell up. 

Later, Hazel and Teairra argued about drifting apart, and Teairra said that Hazel was living off credit card fraud. 

“Everything about this little Hollywood persona that Hazel is trying to present is fake,” Teairra says.

Yes, it was a low blow, but we love all the tension between the cast so far. They are all against each other. 

We also met a new cast member named Brooke Valentine and her boyfriend is still married, so there’s bound to be drama from that. 

Finally, Zell joined in for karaoke night, and Alexis was not impressed with him being included, so she hurled a drink at him. 

What did you think of all the drama?
