Ryan Edwards: Will He Miss the Birth of His Son While In Rehab?

As we reported earlier today, Ryan Edwards is headed back to rehab.

If you’ve been following the sad saga of Edwards’ downward spiral, you know that’s undeniably good news.

Edwards has been arrested three times in the past 18 months as a result of his addictions, and his erratic behavior has endangered his loved ones on multiple occasions.

So it’s encouraging to learn that he’s finally getting serious about getting sober.

But the road to recovery is never an easy one, and according to a new report from Radar Online, Edwards will be making a major sacrifice early on in his sobriety journey.

Edwards’ wife, Mackenzie Standifer, is currently pregnant with the couple’s first child.

(Ryan and Mackenzie each have one child from previous relationships.)

Unfortunately, Edwards will be in treatment for the foreseeable future, and one insider tells Radar that Mackenzie is less than one week away from. giving birth.

“Mackenzie is expected to be induced on October 8,” says the source.

“She is naming her son Jagger Ryan Edwards.”

The insider goes on to confirm that Mackenzie has no expectation that Ryan will be present when her son enters the world:

“I believe her mom and her aunt will be in the delivery room with her,” the source adds.

Not only will Ryan miss the birth of his child, it may be several months before he even meets little Jagger.

“[Ryan] isn’t supposed to be out [of rehab] until February or March,” a different insider claims.

Meanwhile, it remains unclear if Ryan and Mackenzie are still a couple.

One source claims that even before Ryan checked into rehab, he and Mackenzie were no longer living together.

“Mackenzie moved out of the lake house they were living in,” the insider says.

“[She] is now living with her parents.”

Despite that development, Mackenzie recently claimed that she and Ryan are still going strong:

“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,” Standifer wrote in an Instagram post.

“I have stuck by my husband through some of the darkest times imaginable,” she added.

“Have mistakes been made? Hell yes,” Standifer continued.

“Have they been accounted for, dealt with and resolved, yep.”

So it sounds like, for the time being at least, Mackenzie is planning to ride this thing out.

We wish her and Ryan all the best through the difficult time ahead.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.


Kroy Biermann to Kim Zolciak: I’m Gonna Miss Those Big, Floppy Titties!

Months after polling fans on their opinion, Kim Zolciak got a breast reduction.

She’s currently recovering, but has already declared herself part of the esteemed office of the “itty bitty titty committee.”

Now, she’s opening up about her recovery — and her husband Kroy is sharing what he thinks of her new, small boobs.

Speaking on her podcast, House of Kim, Kim Zolciak reiturates why she got her breasts reduced from their previously massive size.

“It’s like you know what, I’m 40, I’m tired,” she explains.

We’re all tired in 2018 no matter our age, but she explains that her boobs were literally weighing her down.

“My back,” she says. “Is a little sore” from carrying the extra burden.

But she shares that her plans for a reduction weren’t universally popular, because “Kroy the whole time has not been that happy about it.”

Her husband Kroy Biermann also speaks on the podcast.

“I’m not against it,” he clarifies.

Obviously any person is more than their body, and anyone who is fixated on one physical trait of their spouse instead of who their spouse is as a person shouldn’t be married.

That said … sexual attraction is a huge part of many, though not all, relationships. It’s not surprising for Kim’s husband to have his own thoughts about her boobs.

Kim says that Kroy loved her “big floppy titties” and will miss them. That’s … quite an image. Good or bad, we suppose, depending upon your personal tastes.

Kroy isn’t shy about being head over heels for Kim’s bazongas.

“I loved them,” Kroy admits.

That said, he’s not in a huff about her surgery or feeling disenchanted with Kim because she’s no longer smuggling a pair of fleshy watermelons wherever they go.

“And,” Kroy shares. “I’m sure I’m gonna love these too.”

We do not doubt that he will. Boobs are great, generally speaking. Size is only one facet of their qualities.

Kim explains some hard truths about how boobs change with time.

“I felt like as I kind of got older, my boobs went from being down under my throat to being by my belly button,” Kim admits.

Throat is an odd term. maybe she means her chest or sternum? When she says “throat,” we’re getting a very upsetting image that resembles Mitch McConnell.

“So now,” she says, she’s had the surgery and “they’re back up at my throat.”

“I’m good,” Kim reveals. “And they are so cute girl, and so perky!”

Kim shares that she’s had some recovery time, but not nearly as much as someone might expect.

“I was only on the [pain] meds for three days,” she reveals.

“Then,” Kim continues. “I was on Advil for two days and I haven’t taken anything for a day and a half,”

It sounds like she’s having a very easy recovery! Good for her.

We hope that she — and Kroy — get a lot of enjoyment out of her brand new D-cups.

Though, for the record, in no universe is a D-cup “itty” or “bitty.”


Leighton Meester Doesn’t Miss Gossip Girl. Here’s Why.

We fell head over heels, madly, totally and deeply in love with Leighton Meester on Gossip Girl.

Blair Waldorf is one of the best characters in TV history and we will physically fight anyone who says differently.

But Leighton Meester says in a new interview that she actually didn’t love her time on this CW hit…

… and she explains in detail her reasons why.

“I would get there at 5 a.m. and leave at 8 p.m.,” the actress tells the latest issue of PorterEdit magazine. “A lot of days I didn’t see the sun.”

Don’t get the star wrong; she knows how lucky she was to work with Chace Crawford, Penn Badgley, Blake Lively, Taylor Momsen and Ed Westwick and to be on a series that lasted for many years.

(“It’s the best-case scenario that a show could ever go for six years,” she says. “It doesn’t happen often.”)

Still, though.

There were nearly just as many downs as there were ups during Meester’s stint on the iconic drama.

“I was young when I started Gossip Girl,” she expounds, detailing how having such a giant hit at this age is both a blessing and a curse:

“A lot more people were suddenly around and I was being looked at.

“If you don’t have the right perspective, you could definitely be confused by people being that nice to you or judging you for behavior that’s typical of a 20-, 21-year-old, making mistakes but having to make them very publicly,.

“I’m not haunted by that time, but it’s been interesting and helpful for me to look at it and examine it as an adult and go, ‘I don’t know if it was the healthiest environment.'”

Gossil Girl ran from 2007 through 2012.

The last couple seasons were trash, but those first few found the perfect mixture of comedy, drama, irony and tone.

You should really go watch Gossip Girl online and catch up if you’ve somehow never viewed the program.

“Everyone has their own journey, especially in their early twenties when they’re just figuring out who they are,” continues Meester in this interview.

“Because of the success of [Gossip Girl], I was put in a place where that journey was sped up. I had to figure it out quickly and with not a completely developed mind to discern between what’s real and what’s not, who I can trust and who I can’t.

“I got really lucky and was able to very early on find and stay friends with people who are true.”

Gossip Girl was a “special time.” Meester does not want to give the impression otherwise.

But does she miss it? That’s a very different question.

“I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s sort of a time capsule…

“I say this with nothing but love – it is like saying, ‘High school was an amazing time for you. Do you wish you could go back?’ And the truth is, it was so special and such a unique, amazing experience, but no, I wouldn’t wanna go back to it.

“I was a kid!”

And now that she’s grown up, Meester will be portraying a single mother on the new ABC sitcom this fall, Single Parents.

She’s come a long, long way.


Miss America 2019: Who Took Home the Crown?

Miss America looked and sounded a tad different this year.

Gone was the swimsuit competition, for instance.

Very much present, however, was a focus on the ongoing political climate in this country.

miss americas

Miss Michigan, Emily Sioma, went viral and earned Internet acclaim by introducing her as “from the state with 84% of the US fresh water but none for its residents to drink.”

This is a reference to the lead water crisis in Flint, Michigan… which started in 2014 and which still has residents forced to drink only bottled or filtered water.

But the judges perhaps were not looking to delve into such topics in depth, considering Sioma did not make the Top 15.

As for who came out on top of the entire thing?

Let’s build the drama and first note that Carrie Ann Inaba and Ross Mathews hosted the event, which aired live from Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

It featured Miss Connecticut Bridget Oei taking runner-up and Miss Louisiana Holli’ Conway taking third place…

… and Miss New York Nia Franklin being crowned the champion!


“It took a lot of perseverance to get here, and I want to thank my family, my mom and dad, who is a survivor of cancer. And all my sisters behind me, I love each and every one of you,” she said upon earning the honor.

Is she a deserved Miss America?

For her talent portion, Franklin showcased her vocal abilities by performing part of an opera.

The contestant actually composed her first song was she was just six-years-old. Which is insane!

During the question-and-answer segment, Franklin was asked how she would promote positive body image as Miss America. She replied:

“I grew up in a school with only 5% minority, but growing up, I found my love of arts and through music, I felt positive about myself and who I was.

“That’s what I would encourage young girls to do, find who you are.”


Frankln became the first winner in the 98-year history of the contest to NOT be forced to get into a bathing suit on stage and strut around, showing off her boobs, stomach and rear end.

How did she feel about that development?

“These changes, I think, will be great for our organization,” she told reporters after she won, adding:

“I’ve already seen so many young women reaching out to me personally as Miss New York asking how they can get involved because I think they feel more empowered that they don’t have to do things such as walk in a swimsuit for a scholarship.”

Amen, right?

It’s sort of stunning this event even takes place in 2018, but the swimsuit elimination is a nice start.

she won

Explained Gretchen Carlson, the newly minted chair of the Miss America Organization’s Board of Trustees, in June:

“We are no longer a pageant. We are a competition.

“We will no longer judge our candidates on their outward physical appearance. That’s huge! And that means that we will no longer have a swimsuit competition.”

Added Franklin of this evolution:

“I’m happy that I didn’t have to do [wear a bikini] to win this title tonight because I’m more than just that. And all these women onstage are more than just that.”

Congratulations again to Miss America 2019, Nia Franklin!


Miss America Cara Mund Says Org Bullied, Silenced Her in Favor of Gretchen Carlson

The reigning Miss America is railing on the org, saying they have silenced and ignored her and instead focused all of their attention on former Miss America and whistleblower Gretchen Carlson. Cara Mund is outraged that the Miss America CEO as well…


Floribama Shore Season 2 Episode 4 Recap: Miss La Vela

The drama kicked into high gear on Floribama Shore Season 2 Episode 4 as we picked up mere moments after Kirk was arrested. 

If you watch Floribama Shore online, you know that he was in big trouble for slapping a dude at the bar who was making comments about Jeremiah. 

Kirk denied that he was the one who took the hit against the loser, but there was a witness conveniently located outside the house, and they were all too happy to put Kirk in the frame. 

As Kirk sat in the back of a squad car contemplating his future, Candace was still lashing out at the boys for not defending Kirk at the bar. 

She rounded up her belongings and continued to yell that she was getting out of the house and returning home. Then, she came to a stunning realization:

Kirk was not inside the house, so he must have been arrested. Gulp. 

Candace made her way outside the house to the cop cars, and despite being told she would be arrested, she persisted in seeing Kirk. 

Gus and Jeremiah looked on as she complained that they were sitting on the sidelines and letting their friend get arrested. 

But what did she expect them to do? They were smart by not messing with the cops. The man who Kirk hit subsequently dropped all charges. 

That was yet another convenient moment for the stars of this MTV hit. Kirk returned to the house, determined to lay low because of that scare. 

However, he had to contend with Candace who was still parading around the house saying that she was going home, but her Jeremiah, Gus, and Kirk had a chat to air their thoughts on the situation. 

Gus had the most sense: He knew they would all end up arrested if they got involved. He knew this was not a battle he wanted to fight in.

This helped Candace realize that she was drunk and causing an argument over nothing. She then apologized, and all seemed right in the world. 

While all of that was going down, Kortni was dancing on the bar, Nilsa and Aimee were getting drunk, and Codi was trying to bring a chick home for some slap and tickle. 

We kid, mostly, but Codi was adamant about getting the blonde woman back to the house because she was DTF. 

He rushed over to his housemates to let them know that he was ready to go home, but disaster struck: He accidentally spilled a bit of Nilsa’s drink on her white crop top. 

On this show, that’s the equivalent of murder, so Nilsa was pissed because she bought the top specifically for the summer vacation. 

She followed up her emotional tirade by throwing her drink over Codi. He ditched his date, started crying and got in the first cab home. 

Kortni accompanied him, and with her being a livewire, it was only a matter of time before something happened. 

In another cab, Nilsa could not keep herself together and decided it was a good idea to urinate all over the seat of the cab. 

We wish we were kidding, but she was deadly serious. Poor Aimee had to stand on the seat to avoid being drowned. 

When they returned to the house, it seemed like there was going to be another big blowout, but Nilsa and Codi forgot why they were arguing in the first place and opted to spoon the night away. 

The next day, the gang of eight realized they needed some money if they were going to survive the summer. It resulted in them calling multiple businesses to find out if they would be employed. 

One business agreed and said that three of them would need to be available the next day on a trial basis. 

Candace and Nilsa then embarked on a bikini challenge, and Candace came in third place. Nilsa was then shocked to the core when she came in second place. 

She flipped out and claimed she would never return to the bar, and rounded up her pals to leave. 

Back at the house, Codi got to work to try and get Candace in his bed because he thought they would make for a good pairing in the house. 

“I’ve been wanting to get with Candace for a while, so this is where I’m going to make my move,” Codi declared in a confessional.

“Some people think that by being friends with somebody first, it gets you put in the friend zone — not Codi. I can get out of the friend zone faster than you can snap your fingers.”

“Candace, my bed is empty,” he calls out. “And it needs you in it.”

Candace did not show up in his room, so Codi decided to meet her in her room, and snuggled with her. 

“What the f— are you doing?” Candace said with a laugh.

“I’m getting into bed,” he says. “I just want to snuggle up and go to sleep.”

“Codi and his flirting, I don’t take him seriously,” said Candace with a grin. “You can’t take Codi seriously!”

The duo then proceeded to go to sleep, but Kortni and her loser boyfriend, Logan appeared and wanted to have sex. 

They then took a trip to the shower and started going at it. But Nilsa got wind of it and went in to admire their naked bodies. 

Kortni then said that Nilsa could join them if she wanted to get closer. That was enough to scare Nilsa away.
