Kendra Wilkinson Mourns “Last Day of Marriage” to “Beautiful” Hank Baskett

It is truly, finally, officially, legitimately all over for Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett.

Almost definitely, we think.

The former Playboy centerfold, who continues to milk her failing romance for every headline she possibly can, has shared a lengthy message on Instagram that most certainly appears to confirm that a divorce is imminent.

Just how imminent?

The papers will be filed tomorrow, Kendra alleges.

“Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man,” wrote Wilkinson to open the caption that accompanies the photo above,adding:

“I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways.”

This is, like, the third time in just a few days that Kendra has told the world that her marriage was over.

Late last week, Wilkinson posted numerous sad pictures and messages on Instagram, all of which culminated with the apparent removal of her wedding ring, as you can see below:

Then, on Monday, Kendra wrote that she was “scared,” but “did everything” she could and that she will “always love” Hank.

As far as we know, no legal papers have been sent to a judge or anything — but Wilkinson is making a point to invite as many people to her pity party as she can by dragging out the build-up of this process.

“I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because i did believe in forever, that’s why i said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way,” Kendra added in her latest post.

“We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile. Sometimes love looks funny.”

Hank and Kendra got married in June of 2009.

They have a son and a daughter.

In 2014, however, Baskett got a hand job from a transgender model… and nothing has been the same for stars ever since.

It sounds like the anger and bitterness has faded away, but trust issues clearly remain.

This is what happens when one half of the relationship achieves a quick orgasm via manual stimulation from someone who is NOT his wife.

Concludes Kendra in her farewell-to-my-blessed-union post:

We are told to make sacrifices in life if it’s true love well in this case it’s me. I want to see happy Hank again… i miss that.

Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewelry but our hearts will always be real. U will prob see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate.

Love wins in this case it’s just looks a little funny.

Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed.

Truth be told, we often make fun of Kendra Wilkinson.

She’s sort of an easy target.

But we don’t doubt she’s going through a lot of pain and suffering in this break-up and, most importantly, there are two young kids at the center of it.

We therefore truly do send her the best.

We hope that she and Hank work everything out as amicably as possible in order to keep being the best and most loving parents that they can be.


Fantasia Barrino Mourns Murdered Nephew: Read Her Statement

Fantasia Barrino has opened up on Instagram about another family tragedy.

The artist’s oldest nephew, Tyquan, was gunned down on Tuesday morning in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Only 18 years old, Tyquan died of multiple gun shot wounds, law enforcement officials confirm to TMZ, following an argument at a residential complex that spilled out into the street.

Paramedics reportedly tried to save the teenager’s life prior to transporting him to Moses Cone Hospital.

Alas, there was nothing that could be done and Tyquan passed away shortly after arriving.

Police have arrested a 21-year-old suspect, who has been charged with first degree murder.

In response to this awful piece of news, Barrino shared the following photo on her social media account and wrote the following caption along with it:

Ty. Auntie is So Sorry Baby. RIP to my Oldest Nephew Please Pray for his Mother and my Brother @riccobarrino & his Stepdad.


TMZ writes that it spoke to a “devastated” Ricco, who didn’t get a chance to see his son on Tuesday morning as he typically does.

And now he never will again.

“Dear son I needed to write this sooner but it’s funny how life make you aware of your own unconscious procrastinations,” Ricco also wrote on Instagram, adding in the aftermath:

“I wanted you to know that from the depths of my heart your daddy loves you and he always has.

“I remember holding you for the first time that’s when I knew that I had to do something other than work in somebody’s factory so that one day you could look up to me.

“As I write this letter with tears streaming down my face I want you to know that I showed you tough love because I knew you were something special.”

Ricco concluded as follows:

“I wanted to be there every day for you and there wasn’t a day that went by I didn’t wonder where you were.

“Well on this day you became a bigger man when you put on a pair of wings and did what I have yet to do. So you show me your leadership skills.

“you go join hands with your grandma and kiss for me. You sing loud for me up there. Love dad.”

This is just the latest very difficult situation for Fantasia and her loved ones.

Her brother, Xavier has been in the hospital for months recovering from injuries he suffered in a serious motorcycle accident.

Barrino won Season 3 of American Idol.

She has been nominated for 12 Grammy Awards, starred in a Lifetime Television movie about her life and also been featured as a main cast member on a Broadway production of The Color Purple.

We send our thoughts and prayers to her and her family members.

May Tyquan rest in peace.


Esther McGregor: Daughter of Ewan McGregor Mourns Divorce in Angry Song

Last year, the world learned that Ewan McGregor split from his wife of 22 years. Some say that they separated last Spring, but the secret got out when Ewan was spotted kissing Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Whoops.

Well, now Ewan is taking things a step further — because he's filed for divorce.

Ewan's 15-year-old daughter is not taking it well. And, as you can see in the video below, she's baring her soul in a song that kind of roasts her dad.

Ewan McGregor is one of those actors on whom everybody's mom has a crush. Or maybe I'm generalizing?

Anyway, he's best known for his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

Most recently, though, Ewan McGregor starred on Fargo. And do you know who one of his costars was?

Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

In one of those life-immitates-art scenarios that seem to happen when there's a middle-aged man spending a lot of time with a beautiful younger woman, the two went from sharing scenes to sharing kisses in public.

It's believed by many that Ewan McGregor may have separated from his wife, Eve Mavrakis, some time in the Spring of 2017.

Ewan's family has characterized this as a mid-life crisis. Ewan is 46 years old. Together, he and Eve have four children.

TMZ reports that Ewan McGregor has filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.

He's filing for joint custody and expressed a willingness to pay spousal support.

TMZ mentions that their sources say that there's no pre-nup in place, so this could be a very costly split — with their shared property being split in half.

(A photo of Ewan in much younger days, closer to the time when he and Eve tied the knot)

It may be that Ewan isn't too concerned about money at present because he anticipates a revival of his Star Wars career.

At this year's Golden Globes, Ewan McGregor was sporting a beard reminiscent of his Obi-Wman role.

Additionally, rumors have been circulating that an Obi-Wan film is in the works, though Disney has yet to confirm this. It will reportedly begin filming in 2019.

We don't imagine that he'll be locking lips with Mary Elizabeth Winstead in that — Obi-Wan's only canon love interest was Duchess Satine of Mandalore, and she died before the events of Revenge of the Sith.

But if he comes out of this divorce hurting financially, an influx of cash from Disney might be just the balm that he needs.

Esther mcgregor

But there's more than one way to be hurt.

Did you know that those kissing photos with Mary Elizabeth Winstead surfaced on the birthday of Ewan McGregor's 15-year-old daughter, Esther McGregor?

October 22nd.

Divorce is an important option for so many couples, but more often than not, it's hell on kids.

Some children blame themselves.

Others feel betrayed by a parent who seems to be tearing apart their family. Esther McGregor clearly falls in the latter category.

Esther mcgregor photo

In a video posted to Instagra, Esther sings a song that she wrote.

She all but spells out that it's about her father's new relationship. She even throws in a line about the world (herself included) seeing her dad kiss his new girlfriend on Esther's birthday.

In the lyrics, Esther responds to the "s–t" she "found online" with:

"I don’t know to forgive. I don’t know if I can. Ruining me."

She has a lovely voice. We're sorry for what she's going through. Divorce, as a process, can be hell. There's really nothing that you can tell the kids to show them the light at the end of the tunnel. This is a very healthy way for her to express herself.

Also, again, she sings beautifully:

Elizabeth Gilbert Mourns Death of Partner Rayya Elias

Elizabeth Gilbert – the author best known for the book Eat, Pray, Love – has shared a moving message on Instagram in memory of her partner, Rayya Ellis.

The 57-year old tragically passed away this week.

Along with the following photo of Ellis playing guitar, Gilbert wrote the following.

(We’ll just quote her word for word, in its entirety, out of respect.)

She was my love, my heart, my best friend, my teacher, my rebel, my angel, my protector, my challenger, my partner, my muse, my wizard, my surprise, my gift, my comet, my liberator, my rock star, my completely impossible non-cooperator, my otherworldly visitor, my spiritual portal, and my baby.

I loved you so much, Rayya. Thank you for letting me walk with you right to the edge of the river.

It has been the greatest honor of my life. I would tell you to rest in peace, but I know that you always found peace boring. May you rest in excitement.

I will always love you.


Gilbert went public with her relationship with Elias in September of 2016 … after Elias was diagnosed with pancreatic and liver cancer, the latter of which is an incurable disease.

The happy and sad news came a few months after Gilbert split from her husband, Jose Nunes, whom she famously wrote about in her bestselling book, Eat Pray Love.

It was the story of a woman at a crossroads in her life, who went off in search of answers.

Each chapter was divided into sections; about food, about religion and, at last, about romance.

The memoir was turned into a hit movie that starred Julia Roberts as Gilbert.

On New Year’s Day, Gilbert posted a pictre of the couple embracing in front of a fireplace.

“Happy New Year, everyone. You made it. We made it. Blessed be. #2018,” she wrote as a caption.


In June, meanwhile, Gilbert and Elias shared a “ceremony of love,” which Gilbert explained wasn’t legally binding, but which she described as “just a private celebration of what we have long known to be true: We belong to each other.”

She added this past summer:

More difficult days are to come. It doesn’t get easier from here. Her illness is grave. But our love is strong. We will walk together as far as we can go together.

After that, it all gets turned over to God. Create beauty with every day you are given.

May Elias rest in peace.


Rihanna Mourns Cousin, Calls for End to Gun Violence

Tragedy has struck Rihanna and her family.

The singer took to Instagram on Tuesday night and passed along the sad news that her cousin had been murdered in Barbados.

Only 21 years old, Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne was shot and killed while spending time in Rihanna’s native country.

In tribute to her late loved one, Rihanna wrote the following on her social media account.

“RIP cousin… can’t believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms!” Rihanna captioned a slideshow of four photos with Alleyne.

She added:

“Never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man! #endgunviolence.”

While followers have expressed their condolences to Rihanna and passed along their sympathies online, many have also focused on the hashtag she included.

End. Gun. Violence.

This is probably as contentious of an issue as exists in America right now.

Heck, the same day Rihanna shared this post, Teen Mom 2 star Jeremy Calvert received both backlash and compliments for gifting his four-year old daughter with a rifle.

Some folks are aghast that any father would do such a thing…

… while others think Calvert was acting responsibly by teaching his child gun safety at a young age.

In other words: gun violence is a complicated issue.

Rihanna has been applauded by some for her call to action above, while others have wondered what steps she is referring to, exactly.

As for the specifics of what happened with her cousin:

According to local reports, Alleyne was simply walking near his residence in Lake Close, Eden Lodge, St. Michael, around 7 p.m. when he was approached by a man who shot him multiple times before fleeing the scene.

The victim was then rushed to a nearby hospital and later pronounced dead.

Authorities in Barbados have launched an investigation.

It’s a tragedy.

In February, Alleyne posted a special message to Rihanna in honor of her birthday.

“Every day we are happy to have you in our lives,” he wrote at the time, adding:

“Happy Birthday cousin, we really love you. Your presence in my life is a source of joy and happiness. To my favorite cousin, may all your dreams and wishes come true.

“#LoveYouLoads #wishyoumanymoretocome.”

May he rest in peace.


Elton John Mourns Shocking Death of His Mother

Elton John has some terrible news to share with his fans:

The artist’s mother has passed away unexpectedly. 

Her name was Sheila Farebrother and she had only just recently rekindled a relationship with her famous son.

“So sad to say that my mother passed away this morning,” wrote John on Instagram and Twitter this morning, adding:

“I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock. Travel safe Mum. Thank you for everything. I will miss you so much. Love, Elton.”

The legendary star did not explain the circumstances surrounding his mother’s death.

But he did include the following image of the pair along with his unfortunate message:

john, mom

The iconic musician announced just this past spring that he had made up with his mom after a nearly decade-long estrangement.

He wasn’t open (nor need he have been) about why he and Farebrother had not been in close contact for many years, but he posted a different happy picture of parent and child on Mother’s Day.

“So happy we are back in touch,” he wrote as a caption at the time.

While John was mostly silent about the reason why he and his mother had a fallout in 2008, Farebrother opened up a bit to The Daily Mail about why she scarcely spoke to her son.

In 2015, she cited her refusal to cut off contact with two of John’s oldest friends – Bob Halley and John Reid – as the catalyst for their severed relationship.

John had previously cut ties with both men.

Said Farebrother to the aforementioned publication two years ago:

“‘I told him: ‘I’m not about to do that and drop them. Bob is like a son to me. He has always been marvellous to me and he lives nearby and keeps an eye on me.’”

She added:

“Then to my utter amazement, [John] told me he hated me. And he then banged the phone down. Imagine! To me, his mother!'”

Last year, however, there was a thawing out between the two.

“Out of respect for my mother’s privacy, I have always shied away from speaking publicly about our relationship,” John said in an interview.

“However, I can say that we are now back in touch and have been so since my mother’s 90th birthday.”

We send our condolences to Elton John and his family.


Bella Thorne Mourns Ex-Boyfriend Lil Peep In Tearful Video

On Wednesday, the music world was shocked by news that Lil Peep had died of an apparent overdose.

Sadly, many who knew the rapper and singer were also aware of the drug problem that eventually claimed Peep's life. 

But the advance knowledge that Peep (real name Gustav Ahr) was on a fatal collision course doesn't appear to have lessened the grief experienced by his loved ones.

Among those who mourning Peep today is actress Bella Thorne.

Thorne and Peep dated briefly over the summer, and they remained close friends in the months after their breakup.

Thorne took to Instagram today to pay tribute to her departed companion.

“I just wanted to say anybody out there who is a Lil Peep fan, you guys know how talented he was, you guys know how great he was… well he was even more f—king great as a person,” says a teary-eyed Bella in the clip below.

Thorne paid tribute to the late 21-year-old on Twitter as well:

"Peep you deserved more out of life. Life didn't do your greatness justice,” she wrote.

Eerily, Peep's final tweet seemed to be a prediction of his own demise:

"When I die you'll love me," the rapper wrote.

Our thoughts to go out to Peep's friends and family in their time of grief.

Watch Bella pay tribute to her late friend below:

Delilah Mourns Son’s Suicide in Emotional Tribute: My Heart is Struggling to Beat

Beloved radio host Delilah is speaking out about the loss of her son, Zachariah, who tragically took his own life earlier this month.

Delilah says her “heart is struggling to continue to beat” after the death of her child, who succumbed to a battle with depression.

The 57-year-old posted a number of childhood photos of her late son, along with a poem by Mary Jean Irion, in his memory.

She writes, “Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.”

“Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.”

“One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,” she adds.

“Or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”

“There will not be another ‘normal day’ with my Zack-Attack, at least not in this life time,” Delilah wrote in her emotional post.

Delilah Tribute

“No more cooking his favorite foods or bringing home gallons of his favorite juice, no more laughter around the bonfire or Christmas mornings.”

“My heart is struggling to continue to beat.”

“Thank you for your prayers, love and support. Please pray for his grandparents, his siblings, his dad and his friends,” she added.

“We are all doing our best to focus on his joyful heart, his wild free spirit and his smile,” she concluded, still reeling from the pain. 

Fans first learned of Delilah’s son’s suicide after she shared the sad news with her friends and fans on Facebook on October 7.

She wrote that he was “being treated, counseled, and embraced fiercely by family and friends while battling depression for some time now.”

My heart is broken beyond repair and I can not fathom how to go on… but I have to believe he is at peace with the Lord.”

She hopes “that God will get us through.”

Delilah revealed that Zachariah left a suicide note behind, though she did not reveal its specific contents for obvious reasons.

The “Queen of Sappy Love Songs” also announced that she would be taking some time away from work in light of all this.

“I will be absent from the radio and on social media for a time as I grieve and try to process this loss with my family,” she said.

“Please pray for my beloved Zacky, and I will pray for all suffering from this debilitating disease called depression.”


Delilah’s radio show, simply known as Delilah, based in the Pacific Northwest, regularly reaches more than eight million listeners.

It’s unclear when that will resume.

Sadly, Zachariah isn’t the first child the mother of 13 – yes, she has 13 children, 10 of whom are adopted – has lost already.

One of her adopted sons, Sammy, tragically passed away back in 2012 from complications from sickle-cell anemia.

On her Facebook page, Delilah also shared the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255.

We urge anyone who may be considering such action – or who knows someone who may be – to call it immediately.


Survivor of Livestreamed Crash Speaks Out, Mourns Girlfriend’s Death

There is no part of this story that isn’t absolutely tragic.

Remember how an 18-year-old girl livestreamed herself appearing to lose control of her vehicle, resulting in the death of her own younger sister? There was a third person in the car who wasn’t initially identified in reports.

That third person, a girl named Manuela Seja, survived with a leg injury and is now speaking about the death of her girlfriend, Jacqueline Sanchez.

Obdulia Sanchez is 18 years old, and was driving her younger sister, Jacqueline, and Jacqueline’s girlfriend, Manuela Seja, back home to Stockton, California.

Obdulia Sanchez’s statements in the alleged recording of the incident are already pretty famous.

“I f-ing killed my sister, okay. I know I’m going to jail for life alright. I understand that. This is the last thing I wanted to happen — okay. Alright, I don’t f—ing care though — I’m-a hold it down.”

Understandably, she was and very likely is overwhelmed with feelings of grief and guilt.

(They may also end up being used against her in court)

Obdulia has been arrested on the suspicion that she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, as well as for the accident and death itself.

Police are investigating the vehicle and looking into the livestream video, which could potentially be used as evidence.

Precisely what caused Obdulia to lose control and ultimately for the vehicle to flip are unclear.

Initial reports suggested that Obdulia had struck a curb and overcorrected, losing control at such a high speed.

It is also possible that a tire blew out.

While she obviously should not have been livestreaming while driving, it’s important that we wait to condemn her until we find out exactly what was going on.

funeral announce

Jacqueline Sanchez and Manuela Seja met on Instagram and became friends.

Over time, their friendship became romantic, and Jacqueline and Manuela dated for seven months before Jacqueline’s death.

Manuela lives in Fresno and Jacqueline lived in Stockton.

130 miles is a long distance for a teenage relationship, but young love is powerful.

The girls had made a commitment to see each other every weekend.

Obdulia was helping her younger sister by driving the girls so that they’d be able to hang out and see each other.

This time, they didn’t make it — the tragic crash happened in Los Banos.

memorial set up

Manuela remembers Jacqueline, who was supposed to celebrate her quinceanera on Sunday.

She’ll treasure those memories for the rest of her life.

A huge part of how she describes Jacqueline is her sense of humor.

“She wasn’t like everybody else. She was just funny and she would be funny. She didn’t even need to try.”

She has a box of treasured memories with her girlfriend — a gift that Jacqueline had made for her.

“I never thought this would happen.”

No one does, but especially not a 14-year-old who has probably had very little experience with death.

Like Jacqueline father said in his own statement, Manuela doesn’t seem to be angry with Obdulia.

“Honestly, I’m not mad at anybody and I don’t blame anybody.”

The fact that this girl who lost her girlfriend of seven months and was a witness isn’t blaming Obdulia makes us hope that investigators take a good, hard look at the evidence before they move things any further.

Obdulia’s excited utterance over her sister’s body is inflammatory, but not proof that it was genuinely her fault.

Manuela has some words of wisdom after the crash.

“It’s all affected by social media. That’s what life is now. And it’s going to advance more and more. That what it’s going to be about.”

It’s not clear if she’s talking about people recording for social media when they should be driving, or if she just means people talking about blame via social media.

Either way, Manuela is right.

o. sanchez

A teen streamed her own death on Facebook Live late last year.

Just weeks ago, a woman livestreamed her own horrific death in a car accident in which she was the passenger.

Whether technology plays a role in distracting drivers or not, streaming means that there can be dozens or millions of witnesses to someone’s death.

Sometimes without any warning whatsoever.

Very likely the only thing that will put an end to livestreamed vehicular deaths will be when autonomous cars dominate the roadways, making them much safer for everyone involved.

But until almost every car is driving itself, it looks like we’re going to see another decade or so of people recording their own deaths.


Drake Bell Mourns Death of Stevie Ryan, Breaks Our Hearts with These Tweets

Drake Bell often uses his Twitter account to engage in feuds with other, better known celebrities.

Over the years, he’s gotten into it with stars such as Justin Bieber (along with the singer’s passionate fans) and Caitlyn Jenner, among others.

Over this past weekend, however, Bell was in no mood to feud.

He was simply stunned and sad over the death of Stevie Ryan.

According to the Los Angeles Coroner’s office’s, the viral video star and aspiring actress hanged herself in her home on July 1.

While details continue to pour in and while we may never know what drove Ryan to commit this tragic act, her final Tweet was posted just a day earlier.

And it was in remembrance of her grandfather.

“The man of my dreams will now only be in my dreams,” she wrote. “I’ll miss you everyday, forever. I love you my Pa.”

Ryan was clearly in a very low place at the time.

Bell, meanwhile, dated Ryan – a YouTube star perhaps best known for her celebrity impressions – from 2005 to 2006.

They attended the 2006 MTV Movie Awards together, walking the red carpet and posing for photographers.

“No no no!!!! I can NOT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!!!! Please wake me from this nightmare @StevieRyan I loved you and will forever miss you!” wrote Bell in response to the awful news on Sunday.

bell and ryan

He later linked to a Fox News report on Ryan’s passing and added:

“This is too much. My heart is crushed. @StevieRyan I love you and miss you…”

A short time later, Bell re-Tweeted a video of Ryan and Perez Hilton from 2007, quoting the celebrity gossip blogger, who wrote that he was “sending so much light to [the loved] ones” of the late 33-year old.

Ryan was outspoken about her struggle with depression over the years on social media.

She even created and co-hosted a podcast about the mental illness called “Mentally Ch(ill)” with Kristen Carney.

Along with a few broken heart emojis, Carney Tweeted the following in response to Ryan’s suicide:

RIP @StevieRyan. The coolest girl I’ve ever known.

The California native sky-rocketed to fame on YouTube thanks to her impersonations of stars such Kim Kardashian, Amy Winehouse and Justin Bieber.

She then starred her own sketch comedy show on VH1, “Stevie TV,” and co-hosted a relationship program (“Sex with Brody”) with Brody Jenner.

She was reportedly found unresponsive at her home on Saturday and pronounced dead at the scene.

Bell may have actually dated Ryan, but he wasn’t alone in mourning her death.

Here’s a look at a few other responses to her shocking suicide:

ryan responses

If you or a loved one are struggling with depression, please seek professional help.

If you are having suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

May Stevie Ryan rest in peace.
