Cheyenne Floyd: Teen Mom OG Fans FURIOUS with Official Casting News!

Earlier this week, MTV finally confirmed the big news:

Cheyenne Floyd is joining the cast of Teen Mom OG.

It wasn’t the first time we heard the idea of Cheyenne, a star on other MTV reality shows like Are You the One? and The Challenge, becoming a cast member on the show.

Far from it, actually.

The first reports about Cheyenne came out back in June, and word is that she began filming then too, along with the father of her daughter, ex-boyfriend Cory Wharton.

Other Teen Mom players have commented on her, and there were even whispers that she’d possibly been let go for some questionable tweets she made several years ago.

But despite all of that, there was no official word on her casting until now.

So now Cheyenne will join Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell, and fellow newcomer Bristol Palin to make the core group of Teen Mom OG.

And in case you haven’t heard, the show’s fans are very, very displeased.

When the official Teen Mom Facebook page posted the news, the comment section was full of dismay.

“Why do they keep adding random people?” one person asked. “These girls were never on the show to start with and shouldn’t be now.”

This is a good point because the “OG” in the title of the show stands for “Original Girls,” because Maci, Amber, Catelynn, and Farrah Abraham, the original cast, have been around since the beginning of the show.

They were on the very first season of 16 and Pregnant, and despite the significant pay raises they’ve received over the years, they really did struggle in the early days — and MTV cameras documented it all.

As another person pointed out, “Can’t be Teen Mom OG if y’all have 2 new people who aren’t even part of the teen mom franchise smh.”

It is a pretty big oversight, considering the title of the show, you know?

Someone else popped in the comments with some sarcasm, writing “I saw a lady with a baby outside of Target today. She looked to be about 25 yrs old.”

“She was fighting on the phone with her boyfriend, so she fits 3 of the key factors. Hurry up MTV, give her a call!!!”

This comment addresses several other issues with Cheyenne’s casting, one being that she’s turning 26 next month and just gave birth to her first child last year.

Say what you will about Bristol Palin — seriously, say whatever, it’s cool — but at least she actually was a teen mom.

Sure, Cheyenne can probably bring the drama, but it feels like anyone starring on a show called Teen Mom should meet that one basic requirement.

Lots of people left comments to say that even though Farrah left the show, things could have gone on with just the three remaining cast members.

Many said that they’d fast-forward through Cheyenne and Bristol’s segments, and some said they’d stop watching altogether.

Quite a few even said that they felt the show should be cancelled at this point.

In conclusion, let’s let one commenter express what the rest of us are thinking:

“Wtf this sh-t is getting so stupid.”

Oh, isn’t it though …


Lyric McHenry: Family Releases Official Statement

Tragically, producer and reality star Lyric McHenry died this week. Friends and fans alike were shocked upon learning the circumstances of her death — that she was found on a sidewalk.

Investigators are still looking into her cause of death. It is unclear if Lyric knew she was pregnant.

Now, her family has released a statement sharing what they know.

In a statement made to Us Weekly, Lyric McHenry’s family says that they appreciate the well-intentioned support they’ve received from loved ones.

“The McHenry Family deeply appreciates the many communications of support,” the statement begins.

The family writes that they received this support “from Lyric McHenry’s many friends upon learning of her untimely death at approximately 6:00 AM the morning of August 14th, 2018.”

They want to help make the timeline clear, based upon what investigators have told them, in order to clear up confusion.

“Despite the speculation in earlier reports,” the family says. “At this point in time the cause of Lyric’s death has yet to be determined”

“In contrast,” the statement continues. “What is factual and known is that Lyric who just turned 26 last week on August 6, was a brilliant, creative, and lovely young woman.”

Lyric, they write, was a woman “who shared a deep passion for writing, film, and a long-standing commitment to social justice.”

She was, and they would prefer to celebrate her life than speculate about her death.

“She was a Christian who grew up in Los Angeles and attended the Center for Early Education,” the statement shares.

“And,” the family writes, Lyric “graduated from the Marlborough School in Los Angeles.”

“Lyric graduated from Stanford University in 2014,” the statement continues.

“Where she studied in Paris, France for a year,” Lyric’s proud family writes. “And spoke fluent French.”

Lyric was politically active even before she was old enough to vote.

They mention that she “worked on numerous social justice issues.”

Notably, Lyric volunteered for the Obama Campaign from 2007 to 2008 and then volunteered again in 2012.

She helped to make the world a better place.

“Lyric produced and raised funds via crowd funding for her first film,” the statement shares. “Which won several film festival awards”

“And,” her family reminds the world, Lyric “was a Producer and member of the cast of E! show EJNYC.

Lyric is well-known for her reality career, but there was so much more to her.

“Currently,” the statement shares. “Lyric was working on packaging and development of several well regarded film and TV projects.”

“She was also interviewing for several West Coast Media jobs,” they reveal. “Having returned to L.A. in February from working in NYC for several years and preparing her applications for a business school MBA Program.”

“Lyric’s warmth, compassion, and energy will be missed by many,” the statement acknowledges.

“And the family would appreciate that all speculation surrounding the circumstances of death cease,” they request.

Because she was found dead less than fully dressed on a sidewalk, some fear that Lyric was murdered. Others wonder if it was an overdose.

They are only making this request “until the real facts are determined during the current investigation by the NYPD and the City of New York.”

“The Funeral Service will be held in her hometown Los Angeles,” the statement concludes. “At a date to be determined.”

Rest in peace, Lyric. We hope that her family finds closure.

Meghan Markle Makes First Official Appearance as The Duchess of Sussex!

The Royal Wedding may be over, but the Royal Life has only just begun for Meghan Markle.

Mere days after she captured the heart of a nation by exchanging vows with Prince Harry, Markle made her first official appearance.

Not as Meghan Markle, of course. But as The Duchess of Sussex.

Equipped with this new title and the perfect look to go along with it, Markle attended a 70th birthday party in honor of her father-in-law, Prince Charles.

He is also the man who walked Meghan down the aisle last Saturday after Meghan’s own father fell victim to some health problems.

Prince Harry and his lovely wife arrived at Buckingham Palace in London on Tuesday afternoon to attend a garden party for the former’s dad, a gathering that caused the newlyweds to postpone their honeymoon.

It remains unclear exactly where the couple will vacation when they do finally get away from it all, but most Royal Sources assume it will be somewhere in Africa.

For this festive occasion, Harry went with a classic black suit over a white button-down shirt and a blue necktie.

Markle, whose fashion will now be scrutinzed for the rest of her life, donned a pale pink hat and a blush-colored Goat dress with sheer detailing.

She styled her brunette hair in a chic side chignon.

In photos from the party, Markle is seen sharing a laugh Charles and with Charles and Duchess Camilla, as over 6,000 people actually attended this celebration.

Prince Charles does not turn 70 until November 14, but this event served to honor patronage, military affiliations and the charities he supports.

The gathering also recognized the emergency personnel who responded to the terror attack at Ariana Grande’s concert at the Manchester Arena, which took place exactly one year ago on Tuesday.

Such an awful tragedy.

In the days since the wedding, Prince Charles has received heaps of praise in the British press for the welcome he offered to Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.

At one point, he was seen taking Doria’s hand in the chapel when she was overcome with the emotion of the big day.

Later, he walked with her as he departed the chapel alongside his wife.

Harry and Meghan, of course, tied the knot in front of approximately 600 guests at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19.

Later that night, they celebrated at a private reception – hosted by Charles – with about 200 of their close friends and family members.

They haven’t said anything in public yet about the wedding, but the newlyweds did pose for this gorgeous photos shortly after they made their union official:

Simply breathtaking, isn’t it?

“The couple will be going on honeymoon, but not straightaway,” said Kensington Palace spokesman Jason Knauf, adding:

“They will have their first engagement as a married couple in the week after the wedding.”

At some point, we’d also have to imagine Markle and Harry sit down for a joint interview as a married couple.

Until then, we’ll just need to be content with the many photos and videos from the Royal Nuptials, some of which we’ve shared shared below.

Royal Wedding 2018: The Official Portraits are Here!

Meghan Markle didn’t merely marry Prince Harry this past Saturday.

She married into Prince Harry’s famous and very wealthy family.

And this development has now been driven home via the release of the official Royal Portraits from Kensington Palace.

Snapped in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle after Meghan and Harry magical carriage procession through London, the picture were shot by fashion photographer, Alexi Lubomirski.

This is the same artist who took the couple’s memorable engagement photos at Frogmore House in Windsor late last year.

The first image (above) is a truly epic gathering of the entire royal family (minus four-week-old Prince Louis, who stayed home at the palace because… come on, he’s four weeks old).

Include in this snapshot is the little bridal party and Meghan’s proud mother, Doria Ragland.

(As you’ve likely read about by now, Meghan’s father, Thomas, suffered a heart attack last week and then underwent a heart procedure. He was unable to make the trip.)

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released three official photographs from their Wedding day,” opens the Kensington Palace Twitter caption alongside this photo, adding:

“These photographs were taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski at Windsor Castle, following the carriage procession. #RoyalWedding.”

Also featured in the photo set is a picture of just Harry and Meghan with their adorable page boys and bridesmaids.

And it’s beyond precious…

Led by Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the eight other children include several of Harry and Meghan’s godchildren and children of their friends.

They are:

Florence van Cutsem, 3; Remi Litt, 6 and her sister Rylan, 7; Ivy Mulroney, 4; Zalie Warren, 2; Jasper Dyer, 6; and twins Brian and John Mulroney, 7.

“The duke and duchess would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding,” a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said in a statement on Monday.

“They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and those who watched on television across the U.K., Commonwealth and around the world.”

Finally, this three-photo release concludes with a romantic snapshot of the brand new bride and groom, looking as happy as two people can be:

Meghan and Harry’s wedding came six months after the couple announced their engagement to the world.

It went off without a hitch, but with plenty of memorable moments.

Markle, for example, paid tribute to Princess Diana by wearing something blue.

She also stunned and inadvertedly seduced millions of people around the world by changing into a sleek white dress for her evening reception.

Just… wow, right?

There was also the kiss outside the chapel and the rendition of “Stand By Me” that was sung right before Meghan and Harry exchanged vows.

The vows did not include the word “obey,” which many have taken as a subtle pro-feminism stance by Markle’s part.

We approve.

Check out the exchange below:

“It has been an incredible honor and privilege to document The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family; from the engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding and family portraits on Saturday,” Lubomirski said in a statement, concluding:

“This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget.”

The same goes for all who witnessed this blessed event.
