Jon Stewart REALLY wants the Mets to be good — and REALLY wants ‘em to sign Bryce Harper — but he’s also been around long enough to know they’ll bungle it. “There’s no way Bryce Harper is coming to the Mets,” Stewart told us in…
OK, so pretty much no one likes Farrah Abraham, right?
Well, besides her dad, and maybe some misguided Teen Mom fans.
If you check out the comments on any of her Instagram posts, you’ll see what we mean.
There are people calling her a whore, making fun of her plastic surgery, pointing out how truly unhinged she always appears to be.
Every once in a while, you’ll see someone say something like “if you don’t like her, why do you look at her posts?”
But for the most part, it’s nothing but hate as far as the eye can see.
Farrah gets so much hate that it’s even spread to her daughter, Sophia.
It’s actually pretty sad.
Sophia is only nine years old, and she’s been criticized for her appearance, the way she talks, the way she behaves …
She’s a cute kid, and it’s not her fault that her delusional mother has pulled her out of school, you know?
That goes for many other things in her life, too: it’s not her fault Farrah has raised her the way she has.
And it’s important to remember that Sophia has been through a lot in her short life.
Her father passed away before she was born, and she’s never had anybody in her life to fill that role.
Ever since she was a baby, Farrah’s been feuding with her own mother, and sometimes it’s even gotten physical.
And then there were the times that she left Sophia with her parents so she could move to Florida on her own or film a reality show overseas.
Basically what we’re saying is that Sophia has experienced a lot of craziness and very little stability over the years, so maybe a little compassion would be nice.
And again, the girl is nine years old.
Still, all of that never stops the grown ass people who feel comfortable bashing her.
And when Sophia shared this new video in celebration of Halloween, those people went wild:
Is the video creepy?
Uh, yeah. Very much so.
That’s kind of the point.
But let’s check out what her followers had to say about it.
“WOW YOUR TRUE FORM!!!” one person wrote.
Someone else called this video “never before seen footage of Sophia relaxing at home.”
There were actually several comments like this — like this is how the girl truly is, and everything we’ve seen on Teen Mom OG has been a lie.
And yeah, it’s a joke, but … come on.
One person said that this video “is beyond disturbing,” and even went so far as to add “@cps.”
Because that’s how contacting child protective services works.
It’s just sad because Sophia is obviously having fun here, and even if you don’t personally like it or think it’s acceptable for a kid her age to be acting like this, there’s nothing really wrong with it.
Kids do act in horror movies all the time, and lots of them like horror, too.
With something this mild, it’s not like she’s going to get scarred for life over it or anything.
So maybe let’s just congratulate her on succeeding in being absolutely horrifying and move on, all right?
OK, so Catelynn Lowell spent a good long while in rehab a while back.
We all remember how this went down, but just in case your memory is a little fuzzy, let’s do a quick little recap.
Last fall, she and Tyler Baltierra decided it was time to have another child, and she got pregnant pretty fast after they made that decision.
Unfortunately, she had a miscarriage.
And it was very, very hard on her.
She began contemplating suicide, but before acting on anything, she told her family, and they helped her check into a treatment center in Arizona.
She spent about six weeks there, missing Thanksgiving and Christmas, then came home.
But as we saw last season on Teen Mom OG, she really wasn’t feeling much better.
In one scene, Catelynn explained to Tyler that she was still very depressed and anxious, and that she felt like she needed to go back to Arizona.
The choice caused a bit of strain on their marriage, from what was shown on Teen Mom.
He tried to convince her to do some therapy and stay at home instead, but she refused to do that.
Instead, she dropped their daughter, Nova, off at daycare without telling her that she’d be gone again, then left.
After six more weeks, she came home, and that’s a bit of what we’ll see in the next episode.
In the beginning of this new sneak peek, Catelynn explains in a voiceover that she’s only been home for a few days at this point.
“It’s been an adjustment,” she admits, “but I really appreciate Tyler taking care of everything while I was gone.”
Then we see Catelynn and Tyler playing with Nova, and he asks Cate if anything’s different now that she’s home.
“She won’t leave me alone,” Catelynn says, referring to Nova.
It’s not the greatest thing to say, especially considering that so many fans thought she seemed too detached with her kid in earlier episodes.
Tyler doesn’t seem to love the comment either.
“Mom comes back and it’s like ‘Dad who? That guy who has all the stupid rules?'” he says.
“‘Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom,” Catelynn mocks.
Yeah, it’s really not sounding so good.
Later, Catelynn visits with a friend named Hayley who kicks off their chat by asking her how she’s been.
She reveals that she has been a bit anxious, but that she feels it’s normal in life to feel a little anxiety from time to time.
Hayley tells her that she seems happier than ever, and she agrees, which is nice.
She also tells Catelynn that she’s probably more in love with Tyler than ever, after how much he’s supported her.
“Oh my god, yeah,” she agrees. “As a husband and wife, man, you say it in your vows, through sickness and in health, for richer or poorer.”
“It’s like, you gotta stand by each other, and he totally did.”
Hayley pumps Tyler up even more — he’s not even there, by the way.
“Yeah, he’s awesome,” Cate replies.
Except she doesn’t sound super convinced.
We know that Catelynn and Tyler went through some things after she came back from rehab.
He’s said that he was “repulsed” by her behavior while she was in treatment, and that couldn’t have been easy for her to hear.
We imagine that as the season goes on, we’ll see more of their issues, but so far …
It’s honestly looking kind of bad.
And, judging by the comments left when MTV shared this sneak peek on Facebook, most Teen Mom fans are just completely over Catelynn in general.
“She is a horrible human,” one person wrote. “To complain how your daughter is showering you with attention because you left her for months on end, how pathetic.”
And that was the top comment, so …
Another commenter asked “How many times does Tyler have to stand by you before you act on his feelings instead of it being all about you?”
One person said that they were “glaring at how Nova noticed her mom mocking her desperate need for attention and validation.”
Things got especially savage when someone else said that “I think she’s just a failure of a mother and uses her illnesses as a way to escape to rehab.”
The comments go on and on and on like that, about what an awful mother she is and how Tyler needs to leave her.
Lots of people also seem concerned that she’s expecting another child now, since they think she’s so cold with Nova already.
Honestly, it’s a real bad time to be Catelynn Lowell right now.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns in early November, and there have been some casting shake-ups.
After a year of suspense, Kenya Moore is off the show.
It doesn't pay to hide your wedding from the cameras, folks. Not when you're a Real Housewife.
But Kenya's vacancy doesn't just make room for new faces — it also frees up some cash.
Season 10 had some incredible ratings, so a lot of these Housewives got raises for Season 11.

So how are things between Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson these days, five months after the world learned about his cheating heart?
Really, it depends on who you ask.
Some recent reports have claimed that “Khloe and Tristan are doing better than anyone could have expected,” and that he “promised” her he would never be unfaithful again.
But just a few days ago, Khloe went on a rant about “toxic” relationships on Instagram, so who really knows what’s going on?
In that rant, she wrote that “It’s important to remember that in a relationship you’re not supposed to be fighting your partner, you’re supposed to be arguing against the actual issue … TOGETHER.”
“Finding a solution TOGETHER,” she continued.
“No one wins when fighting the person who cares about you. You gotta be mature enough to understand that you have some toxic traits too.”
“It’s not always the other person,” she concluded.
So that means … what, exactly?
Khloe is known for making super vague posts like this and then getting all bent out of shape when people understandably assume she’s talking about something in her own life.
But if we had to guess, it seems like she perhaps got into a bit of an argument with Tristan, and she’s either reminding him or herself to try to do better.
And now, thanks to a new report from Radar Online, we may have an idea about what they were fighting over!
Hint: for once, it didn’t have anything to do with Tristan’s penis.
As a source close to the couple claims, “Khloe wants Tristan to let Kris manage his money.”
So far, it kind of makes sense, doesn’t it?
After all, Kris Jenner has proven herself to be a great manager, and if Khloe and Tristan are really working things out and planning on lasting forever, this wouldn’t be the strangest move.
But the source explains that she wants this to happen because “She feels he’s spending way too much on jewelry, cars, and stupid sh-t.”
She also allegedly thinks that he’s giving “way too much money” to Jordan Craig, the woman he was dating when he met Khloe and the mother of his other child.
As you can probably imagine, that didn’t go over too well.
“Tristan thinks she’s crazy and told her he’s capable of managing his own cash and was offended she even asked him such a thing,” the insider says.
Also, “Tristan thinks this is another way Khloe’s trying to trap him and get him all tied up in the Kardashian web.”
What a mess.
If this is true, it’s pretty awful on Khloe’s part, because why does she even care what Tristan does with his money?
It’s fine if she brought up the idea of Kris helping him manage it, but what does it really matter if he likes spenging money on “stupid sh-t”?
And in what universe would it be acceptable for her to tell him that he’s giving the mother of one of his children “way too much money”?
Both of them have more money than most of us could possibly imagine, with Khloe being worth a reported $ 40 million.
With her clothing company and her habit of doing lots of different reality shows in addition to Keeping Up with the Kardashians — which doesn’t seem to be even close to being over — her net worth is only going to grow.
Meanwhile, back in 2015, Tristan sighed a five-year contract with the Cavaliers for $ 82 million.
It’s not like buying a car or two or, heaven forbid, sending lots of money to support your kid is going to put any significant dent in their fortune.
But yeah, sounds like things are really going well for these two right now, huh?
Divorce tends to be a painfully slow process, but since we learned of Alexis Bellino’s divorce in June, she and her husband, Jim Bellino, have already reached a settlement.
Despite Alexis’ tearful divorce confession, it looks like things worked out alright for both parties — and for their kids.
We now know the details on how much the former Real Housewife is getting.
RadarOnline gots their hands on the Bellino divorce documents.
In addition to child support and spousal support payments, the court has ordered a one-time payout from Jim to Alexis to the tune of $ 250,000.
Per the documents, the overall agreement is effective “upon the signing of the Judgment by both parties.”
While a quarter of a million dollars is definitely a lot of money, it’s only about one-sixth of Jim Bellino’s net worth, and would only support someone (even someone living modesty) for a matter of years, not decades.
Don’t worry — Alexis is getting a lot more than that.
According to the documents obtained by RadarOnline, though the couple is sharing custody, Alexis will receive child-support.
“Petitioner shall pay to Respondent as and for child support the sum of $ 2,000.00 per month per child for a total of $ 6,000.00 per month,” the court documents read.
It says that this amount is “payable one-half (1/2) on the first and one-half (1/2) on the fifteenth days of each month, commencing August 1,2018.”
Naturally, “This duty of support continues as to an unmarried child who has attained the age of 18 years, is a full-time high school student, and who is not self-supporting.”
And it must continue “until the time the child completes the 12th grade or attains the age of 19 years, whichever occurs first.”
That’s just what’s mandated by the court, of course; Jim and Alexis love their children and we’re sure that they’ll make sure to provide for their children through college and beyond.
Alexis is also getting spousal support, on top of the one-time payment of $ 250,000.
“Petitioner shall pay to Respondent, as and for spousal support,” the documents read. “The sum of $ 10,000.00 per month.”
This amount is “due and payable one-half on the first and one-half on the fifteenth days of each month commencing August 1,2018.”
As is fair for spousal support, the document continues: “and continuing thereafter until the death of either party, or further order of the Court, whichever first occurs.”
So Alexis gets ten grand a month, forever.
“Everything we do is about the kids,” Jim Bellino has assured those concerned about their divorce. “Everybody’s getting along great.”
As we mentioned when we brought up that Jim is suing Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge, Jim and Alexis released a statement.
“We would like to thank the many individuals who have expressed support for us as we worked through one of the most difficult times of our personal lives,” the statement began.
“To those who have shown that they truly care, we are happy to report that we have reached an amicable resolution of our divorce proceedings, which we expect to keep confidential in order to protect our privacy,” they continued.
“And,” they added, they intend to “keep the most sensitive and intimate details of our lives from becoming grist for a malicious ‘rumor mill.’”
The statement continued, pointing out that the couple had heard rumors about them … and were not amused.
“We have been unfairly and viciously targeted by certain individuals in recent weeks,” the couple said.
They then blasted those “who have severely aggravated the pain we have had to endure through false, defamatory, and highly objectionable statements to the media.”
“We look forward to holding those individuals fully accountable,” the statement added. “Through the legal process for the substantial damages that they have caused and continue to cause to our family.”
It’s good that they were able to reach a reasonably fair-sounding arrangement. Some divorces end with one party reduced to abject poverty. That should never happen.
At first blush, it appears Garry Shandling left behind an estate of less than a million dollars — a surprisingly low amount for the mega-successful comedian … but there’s more to the story. According to new legal docs — obtained by TMZ –…
Ryan Edwards is in big trouble, guys.
And not even for drug stuff this time.
Well, maybe for drug stuff … he did just get arrested a few weeks ago, and he’s still on probation.
But right now, for once, we’re not talking about Ryan’s heroin addiction.
And that’s because we’re talking about the ridiculous amount of money he owes the IRS!
Radar Online just revealed that the IRS filed a federal tax lien against Ryan back in March for $ 119,416.24.
According to a county clerk out in his neck of the woods, he hasn’t paid any of that, but a source close to Ryan claimed that he totally paid it off right after he heard about it.
Wonder who we should believe?
It might be hard to understand how Ryan, who reportedly made $ 325,000 for the latest seasons of Teen Mom OG, is in so much debt.
But if you break it down, it all starts to come together.
Cast members of Teen Mom are independent contractors, meaning MTV doesn’t withhold taxes from their paychecks.
A responsible person would set aside some money from those paychecks so they could pay their taxes every year, but we all know that Ryan is not a responsible person.
And Ryan did not set aside money to pay his taxes.
Remember, Mackenzie Standifer claimed last year that before he went to rehab, he was spending $ 10,000 a week on drugs, and if that’s true, it’s easy to see how he could have gone through his MTV money so fast.
But still … $ 120,000 is a lot of money, especially since Ryan was fired from Teen Mom.
How can he possibly pay that back now?
Don’t worry, Mackenzie is going to try her very best to provide for her family while Ryan continues to violate his probation and generally be a mess!
She recently revealed that she’s working an office job full-time, and she’s also been posting some ads on Instagram, so there’s quite a bit of income there.
There’s also that event planning business she just announced!
As she explained in a post on her website this week, “My personal mission is to see your dreams come to fruition.”
“Sometimes it can be hard to take all of the thoughts, dreams, and visions in your head and turn them into a reality. That is where I step in.”
She says that if you hire her as your planner, than she “will be here to help and guide you every step of the way.”
If you think about it, this is actually a very smart move — the girl had three weddings before her 21st birthday, so she probably knows what she’s talking about.
And sure, one of those weddings was in a parking lot by the river, and the only guests were the groom’s parents who sat quietly nearby and cried some not-so-happy tears during the ceremony.
And yeah, her groom was high as a kite as he said his vows.
But she’s probably going to do just fine at planning other people’s weddings!
Also on her site, she has different plans you can purchase, along with the prices.
The cheapest plan costs $ 150, and for that, you get 30 minutes for a phone call or a Skype session with Mackenzie herself, help with the itinerary, design, and concept, and a two hour session to “get your plan on paper.”
The most expensive plan runs for $ 1,500, and that includes multiple in-person consults with Mackenzie as well as unlimited texts, emails, and phone calls.
She’ll also coordinate and attend your rehearsal dinner, make sure everything runs smoothly on the day of the wedding, and come with you to meetings with your vendors.
We’re not sure how much wedding planners generally charge, but it seems like she’s got some pretty reasonable rates, right?
Especially since there have got to be Teen Mom fans out there who are also getting married and who have $ 150 to blow for a Skype call with Ryan Edwards’ wife.
So she’s doing event planning, an office job, and all kinds of ads on Instagram, all while seven months pregnant.
Hopefully she can help Ryan get his tax stuff sorted, or, at the very least, she can inspire him to get a job, since he doesn’t seem to be doing much besides getting arrested these days.
Seriously, get it together, Ryan.
Money can't buy you class. Fortunately, money can buy you a second stint in rehab in case you fall off the wagon.
That second scenario is exactly what happened to The Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps.
Now, she's revealing exactly how much she drank in one night when she unfortunately relapsed. And the details may shock you.
Luann sat down with noted talk show villain Megyn Kelly to reveal exactly what prompted her return to rehab.
Like most people who abuse any kind of substance, she was self-medicating. In this case, to cope with a very unpleasant instance of the past haunting her.
See, her ex-husband Alexandre de Lesseps was suing her, accusing her of stealing from their children. And she found out about it in the worst way.
"I found out about this whole story," Luann told Megyn. "That I was getting sued, in the press."
"That was devastating," Luann explained. "I felt betrayed, I felt so hurt by that. I had my heart set on that house, my heart. I was devastated and I lost it."
Luann told Megyn and also E! about how she coped with that heartbreak by drinking.
You can see her say this in the video that we've included.
"When I fell off the wagon," Luann says. "I mean, I think I had two watermelon martinis."
That doesn't sound like much at all — but she was only just beginning.
"I had at least two bottles of rosé," Luann reveals. "And I got into a six-pack of beer in one night."
Despite all of that, Luann enjoyed herself at the time: "I mean, and I was still dancing in the kitchen in a bikini."
Luann knows that alcohol has a devastating impact on her health, her mental state, and even on her looks.
"At this point, I feel like I’m almost allergic to alcohol," Luann told Megyn.
Luann feels this way "ecause I can’t be like most normal people and have a glass or two of wine."
"I’m like, I’ll drink the whole bottle and then I’m looking, where can I get another bottle?"
Drinking a bottle at a time on its own isn't necessarily a warning sign, but feeling like they then need more? That's not healthy.
"It just doesn’t work for me," Luann says of cutting herself off. "I’m just not wired that way."
Luann also spoke about how her life has been transformed by her sobriety.
"I have this whole new life now," Luann gushes.
This is why, even if she enjoys drinking when she does it, she wants to leave it as part of the past.
“I go to AA meetings, and I follow up my treatment now that I’m back from rehab," Luann says. "I take it very seriously."
It's good that she takes it seriously. Luann was arrested for kicking a police officer last year. That could have ruined her whole life.
Now, what Luann had to drink would leave some people passed out and sick.
Others could drink it without any memory loss or a hangover. Why? Because people's bodies are different.
What makes drinking dangerous for Luann isn't the amount, but the fact that she cannot stop. As she says, she can't just have two drinks.
This is not uncommon in addictive behaviors. There are people who can gamble and stop, and there are others who lose control.
That Luann realizes this about herself and treats alcohol as an allergy and is so honest and direct about confronting this tells us that she will hopefully be alright.
