Kim Kardashian to Kanye West: Stop Rapping About Our Relationship Problems!

Last week, Kanye West released his eighth studio album to critical acclaim and blockbuster sales.

Yes, despite recent controversies surrounding West’s political views and outlandish tweets, ‘Ye has proven a success by any measure.

The album is set to take the top spot on the Billboard 200, and the top seven songs on Apple Music and Spotify are all by Kanye.

Of course, as he so often reminds us, Yeezy is his own harshest critic.

(He’s also his own most fervent cheerleader, a situation that may help to explain the album’s cover art.)

But when it comes to his latest feats of lyricism, Kanye may have some competition in the detractor department, as wife Kim Kardashian is admittedly less than thrilled about some of the lines on ‘Ye.

Kim says she was especially displeased by lines in which Kanye rapped about her reaction to his now-infamous claim that “slavery was a choice” for several centuries’ worth of black Americans.

On the song “Wouldn’t Leave,” West raps:

“My wife callin’, screamin’, say, ‘We ‘bout to lose it all!’ / Had to calm her down ‘cause she couldn’t breathe / Told her she could leave me now, but she wouldn’t leave.”

“Did I cry about it? Did I fight about it? Yeah,” Kim told Entertainment Tonight at the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York on Monday. 

“That’s not stuff we put on social media — I’m not going to start tweeting what my thoughts are, but we have those moments and that was the one song that he didn’t really play for me until the last minute, so I heard that last minute and it meant a lot to me.”

Kim proceeded to dial back her criticism, saying:

“I really like that song … But yeah, we have different views sometimes, but that’s my husband, you know?”

Of course, when most wives sigh “That’s my husband!” they’re talking about the time he used their wedding dress to wax the car, not the time he told the whole world she almost divorced him due to his controversial views on slavery.

But even though she’s not thrilled with every line on the album, Kim says she’s a big fan of her husband’s EP:

“I’m so happy that it’s been well-received because I’ve seen him go through a lot and he’s just the most genuine person,” she told ET.

“He might say things that might get misinterpreted and people don’t see the context behind it, but I always know his heart, so I’m glad that it was really well-received,” she added.

As for all those tough-to-defend remarks, Kim says that’s just part of life with Kanye:

“I always believe and trust in him that he will always eventually explain himself because I know it’s hard,” she said.

“I know what he really means when he says something and I know people will too at some point.”


Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra Reveal Heartbreaking Mental Health Problems

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have been through so much in their lives.

Just way, way too much.

Catelynn has April for a mother, and we’ve seen April be mentally and verbally abusive to her on several occasions in the early seasons of Teen Mom.

Tyler has Butch for a father, and we know it wasn’t easy on him to watch his dad go in and out of jail for literally his entire life.

But because they had such intense issues with their own parents, they were able to make the remarkably responsible, admirable decision to place their daughter Carly for adoption when Catelynn became pregnant at 16.

Unfortunately, even though it was the right thing to do, it was still obviously incredibly painful for them, and it’s clear that they still struggle with their decision somewhat, even today.

When they had their second daughter, Nova, Catelynn developed some serious postpartum depression, so much that she had to check into a treatment center.

And then when she and Tyler decided to try for another baby, she ended up having a miscarriage, which was very hard for both of them.

It was a big trigger for Cate’s depression, and she actually began considering suicide because of it, and so back to rehab she went.

Meanwhile, Tyler struggled at home, dealing with his own grief while caring for Nova and running their household.

Like we’ve said, these two have been through a lot.

But Catelynn’s been home from rehab for a few weeks now, and it looks like she and Tyler are dedicating themselves to raising awareness and bringing attention to the kinds of mental health issues they’ve been dealing with.

They’ve been talking about it on the show, of course, and on social media, and now they’re taking the time to do interviews on the subject.

Earlier this week, they made an appearance on a podcast called Voices for Change 2.0, and they really shared a lot.

And here we were, thinking their story couldn’t get any more heartbreaking …

During the podcast, they both revealed the mental illnesses they’ve been diagnosed with, with Catelynn explaining that she’s dealing with a few different things.

“It’s panic disorder, PTSD — I like to call myself a trauma survivor — and it’s depression, but it’s co-occurring depression or something like that,” she said.

“It will go away and it will come back with the panic disorder.”

She also said that it “kind of surprised” her to be diagnosed with PTSD, but that “it makes a lot of sense too.”

Honestly, if you’ve watched those first few seasons of Teen Mom, a diagnosis of PTSD makes perfect sense.

From the way she was raised to that super painful adoption, it’s actually pretty surprising she didn’t get that diagnosis sooner.

As for Tyler, he revealed that he first felt depressed when he was just 11 years old.

A big issue for him was his father “going in and out of prison all the time,” but he said that “at 11, though, that’s when I attempted suicide and failed.”

If you blocked that horrible story out of your head, he’s been very open about his suicide attempt in the past — he tried to hang himself but it didn’t work, and he had to walk around school with rope burns around his neck.

“After that my mom started to take me to therapy,” he recounted. “I was on anti-depressants a bit.”

But in the past few months he’s been going back to therapy, and he said that people there told him that he could be bipolar.

“That was pretty shocking to figure out,” he admitted, “but also it made a lot of sense back to when I was younger … But that was a lot to obviously digest that day.”

During the podcast, Catelynn also discussed why she felt comfortable airing so much of what she’s been through in the past few months on Teen Mom OG.

“I talked a lot about it with my therapist when I was in treatment,” she said, “my whole thing about me being vulnerable and sharing it. I could have said no to the producers and the people who work on the show and they would have totally understood.”

“If I was like, ‘Listen, I’m going through a rough time and I’m not filming it and I don’t want it to be aired,'” she said that MTV would have respected her wishes.

“But my whole thing is, if I can save somebody’s life and show them that it’s OK to not be OK sometimes and there’s things that you can do to get help, that’s the only reason I did it,” she continued.

“I wanted to bring awareness to the mental health issues and show that it’s real.”

She said that “Some people think, ‘Oh, you’re depressed, get the hell out of bed,’ but no, that’s not how it works. I just wanted to shine a light on that.”

It seems like she’s doing a great job so far, and we couldn’t be prouder of them both for taking care of themselves so well!

Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines: Relationship Problems Revealed!

Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines have accomplished the near impossible.

The married HGTV stars have managed to remain starkly in the spotlight for years… without almost any divorce chatter ever making its way around the Internet.

The parents of four will soon embark on what they’ve announced will be their final season of mega hit Fixer Upper and are generally considered one of the most loved couples on all of television.

Whereas starring roles on reality TV programs have driven other twosomes apart, the chemistry between Chip and Joanna has only intensfied over the years.

But this wasn’t always the case.

In his new memoir, “Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff,” Gaines says his romance with Joanna was nearly over before it really began.

About six months into their relationship, Chip says he went to Mexico for 90 days to learn Spanish.

His then-girlfriend was placed in charge of his businesses* while he was away… and this caused a major problem.

(*Yes, Chip started a number of businesses before he settled on home renovation and real estate. Click on the slideshow below to find out more.)

“Your business is a joke!” she yelled, Chip admits in his book about a phone call they had just weeks after he left.

“All these people are coming to my dad’s shop demanding to be paid, and there’s no money. Lucky for you, your sad is bailing your sorry butt out. You have three days to get back to Texas or this relationship is over.”

Chip says the tone she used made it clear Joanna was dead serious.

“My heart broke,” he wrote, adding in the book:

“There are hard moments in life when you see yourself for the tonto that you are. This all felt so much bigger than a few bounced checks.

“Up until that moment, Jo had really respected me and the work that I did.”

So Chip rushed home to Texas and nearly proposed then and there.

He knew he couldn’t lose Joanna and he respected how straightforward she was acting when it came both to his business and to their relationship.

Today? No marriage is perfect, but this one does appear to be on television at least.

Still, Chip says the couple is “strengthening their marriage every day, which takes real time and effort.”

This is practically what Chip and Joanna said upon confirming Fixer Upper would end after Season 5.

“This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment,” they explained, concluding:

“Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.”
