The 2018 Emmys have come and gone, but they didn’t leave without some great shots of celebs backstage embracing each other in what turned into a big lovefest. Some of the stars who were extra affectionate Monday night … Jessica Biel and Justin…
This may be the best thing that we've ever seen.
How many couples are so in tune that one knows when and where the other will propose?
These two took things one step further — both proposing to each other on the same spot, at the same time, without the other having any idea.
June is Pride Month, and there's no better time to tell this heartwarming story!
Jessa Gillaspie and Becky McCabe went to the Memphis Zoo & Aquarium over Memorial Day weekend.
Uploading this amazing video that will make you believe in love again, Jessa writes:
"Becky McCabe and I got ENGAGED Friday night at Zoo Brew!!!!!!!"
She then reveals the long and short of it:
"I had no idea she planned to propose, and she had no idea I planned to propose to her!"
The results are truly beautiful.
Jessa continues to explain.
"We were both so surprised!!!!"
That is an understatement. They were visibly overwhelmed with emotion.
"We were surrounded by our friends and had the most amazing night."
We're sure that they did!
"I am the luckiest girl in the world to be able to call her my fiancee. #TheMcBabes."
This is so precious.
in the video, Jessa and Becky pose for an apparent photo.
While Jessa seems confident and happy, Becky is visibly nervous, because she is about to propose at that exact moment.
When she starts talking to Jessa, Jessa is visibly overcome with emotion.
When Becky drops to one knee, Jessa can barely contain her excitement and also can no longer hold back.
In lieu of a more traditional verbal answer, she pulls out her own ring box.
She had been planning to propose to Becky at that spot during that visit.
After this touching video went viral, Jessa added a postscript.
"UPDATE: We had no idea this would blow up so quickly!"
Very few people expect things to go viral, especially when they're just sharing a cute video with family and friends.
"But I can’t say I’m not thrilled, because all I’ve ever wanted was for Beck and the world to know how much l love her."
"We are overwhelmed with all of the positive responses."
As they should be.
"Really, you guys have no idea how much that means to us!"
There are many places in American society where same-sex couples like Becky and Jessa are still afraid to walk hand in hand or exchange a kiss — things that couples of different genders take for granted.
Anti-LGBT violence continues to be a pernicious threat, especially when it is tacitly endorsed by those in power.
But seeing Becky and Jessa's beautiful proposal video go viral is a reminder that things aren't always as terrible as our newsfeeds would make it seem.
And they may just make some people believe in love again.
Safaree Samuels has a career, to be sure. But his most talked about accomplishments have been dating Nicki Minaj and getting a beatdown from Meek Mills. Until now, that is.
On February 25th, Safaree Samuels’ nudes leaked and the internet lost its mind. People were impressed, to say the least.
In fact, people were so impressed that he’s reportedly been offered a porn role. Will he accept?
HollywoodLife reports that their source describes Safaree’s reaction to his leaked nudes and the response that they’ve garnered.
Their source says:
“Safaree is shocked that his phone has been blowing up since the penis pics leaked.”
We imagine that the leaks themselves came as a shock.
The fact that they got attention … should not.
“He has been getting marriage proposals, job offers, and he even has a ton of new online haters and trolls trying to diss him since the pics leaked.”
That last part is hilarious, and should serve as a reminder that everyone gets hate online.
The job offer bit is funny, as seeing somebody’s nudes should really only make you want to hire them for certain, very specific things. (We’ll get to that in a moment)
The marriage proposals thing is the best part. Weird, to be sure, but funny.
(This photo is just one of many hilarious fan reactions to seeing Safaree Samuels in all his nude glory; you can see this and others below)
Safaree Samuels apparently doesn’t think that the fame will last.
“He thinks everyone will forget about the pics soon.”
Well, it’s true that stories come and go.
(He should really be working to capitalize on this while he has his chance — even if it’s just with music or some sort of social media endorsement deal)
“But if they open a few doors for him, then he is cool with that too.”
He’ll need to act quickly before those doors close.
As we mentioned, he’s gotten job offers.
Specifically, he’s reportedly been offered a role in pornography. Since, you know, he seems to be equipped for the job — and his celebrity status and viral nudes would be free publicity.
“He has never considered doing porn until now.”
That’s interesting — even if he hadn’t fantasized about it, we’re surprised that no one who has seen him naked has at least jokingly suggested it to him.
Most celebrities turn down porn offers — even most Z-list reality stars — but this report claims that Safaree might at least consider it.
“While his heart is in hip-hop, Safaree considers himself a businessman first and if the money is right, he is open to any opportunities that come his way.”
According to another of HollywoodLife‘s sources, Nicki Minaj reportedly wouldn’t be surprised if Safaree leaked the photos himself.
It’s true that the nudes seem to have given him a bit of a boost and perhaps even brought in some new fans.
Which is in a stark contrast to what happens to so many female celebrities when their nudes are leaked.
It’s never okay to leak a star’s nudes, obviously — or anyone else’s. It’s a horrible violation of them and often used as blackmail, revenge, or an intimidation tactic. Sometimes it’s even a hate crime.
Many women — stars as famous as Jennifer Lawrence — have had nudes leak. Tragically, the public response often takes the form of slut-shaming.
Some monsters have had the audacity to suggest that the fault is theirs for having taken the photos in the first place, rather than on the despicable cowards who hacked and distributed the images.
It’s nice to see that Safaree isn’t experiencing nearly so much of this, but sad that sexism still makes people malign women for daring to have a body.
But … will Safaree do porn?
Perhaps Safaree’s decision will come down to whether it will help or hurt his brand.
Few people become sex workers lightly. There’s nothing inherently wrong with sex work, whether one’s a stripper or starring in porn or engaged in prostitution. But there’s an unfair stigma attached to each.
Safaree might find that he’ll get backlash for engaging in porn and ruin his career.
On the other hand … he might just gain more fans than he’s ever had before.
Just look at how much Twitter loves him after seeing his nudes:
“Goliath” star Tania Raymonde has done a sex scene or two in her career … so any new guidelines that would make it more comfortable for her and other actresses is totally OK with her. We got Tania at LAX Wednesday where we asked her…
With the news that Siggy Flicker was quitting The Real Housewives of New Jersey, many many questioned what her final storyline would focus on.
Unsurprisingly, The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 13 did not paint her in the best light, and the season concluded with the star looking like the rudest housewife in the history of the franchise.
When the episode began, Margaret was getting a little too excited about her birthday party. She was having her dress fitted, and there’s no denying it was a visually delightful dress.
Danielle appeared and could not resist taking some more shots at Siggy. Maybe Danielle is just glad that she’s not the one on the outs with the gals. The days of Danielle being a pariah are over, and she’s using it to her full advantage.
The action switched up to Casa de Giudice as the family got ready to give Teresa a surprise of her own for her birthday. Melissa, Joe and the girls.
It was a cake with letters from the girls to show how much they loved her. If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you will already know that the girls have been hard on Teresa this season.
For Teresa, she’s had a lot on her mind with her mother dying and her husband locked up in the slammer. Speaking of Joe, Teresa had not been to visit him in almost eight months.
Given the countless rumors that Teresa has moved on with a new man, maybe she’s officially through with Joe. They’ve been through a lot as a couple, and maybe it’s time for them to move on.
Anyway. Teresa wanted to visit and have him apologize for everything the family has been through.
“I’m nervous to see Joe after all this time, and I want him to say sorry and really mean it,” she confessed to the camera with a tear dripping down her face.
In an unsurprising turn of events, the cameras were not allowed in the prison and Teresa reported back that she did not get that apology she so desperately wanted.
Before Teresa got to tell Melissa and Joe Gorga about all of it, the husband and wife chatted about the prospect of Teresa leaving her husband.
They both agreed that Teresa would leave if he didn’t apologize, but Teresa confirmed the truth when she arrived to meet them.
“He said, ‘I’m so sorry, I’ll never let anything like this happen ever again,’” she reported. “He seems sincere,” she added. “Listen, no one’s perfect. Everyone makes mistakes.”
Margaret’s party finally arrived, and she actually entered the venue on a fake horse. So, yeah, that happened. Everyone seemed to be laughing at Margaret as opposed to with her.
Then, disaster struck when a rumor spread like a wildfire around the party that Siggy was not coming. It was quickly revealed that she fell and hurt herself.
“Oh my God, it’s another deflection,” Danielle said with a grin. “She’s trying to get attention.” Dolores sprung into action, saying: “You’re such a slob.”
Siggy started texting the other women and completely iced Margaret out. We finally got to see her leaving the hospital, so it sounds like she really went.
It was obvious Siggy did not want to go to the party, but she heard that Danielle was trash talking her and made it her mission to get there.
As Margaret checked in with her, Siggy said, “I don’t want to be friends. I came here to be with Teresa and Melissa.”
Who goes to a party and speaks to the host like that? Margaret’s actions to Siggy have been justified because of the way Siggy has acted in the past.
“If you don’t want to be here, just f–king leave,” Margaret said because she was done with the whole thing.
Siggy got up to leave, and Dolores and Teresa left with her. This only made things more awkward for everyone, but it also closed out the season.
Now, what will happen at the reunion? Will Siggy even show up? Oh, the drama!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey continues Wednesdays on Bravo.
If MTV learned anything from the fist-pumping phenomenon that was Jersey Shore, it’s that reality TV sensations don’t last forever.
As such, the network isn’t wasting any time in cranking out new seasons of its current wildly-popular franchise, Teen Mom.
Last night, another season of Teen Mom: OG came to a close, and the network took the occasion to announce that the long anticipated ninth season of Teen Mom 2 will be debuting July 17!
(Officially, it’s the show’s eighth season, as the most recent installment was referred to as season 7B for legal reasons, but we all know that’s a load of crap.)
Given the amount of drama that’s transpired in the months since the show last wrapped filming, we’re half wondering how producers will cram it all in …
… especially since this season will see the addition of a fifth mom.
Yes, Briana DeJesus will join the cast following a one-season stint on the ill-fated Teen Mom 3.
It’s curious timing, as the show has a whole lot to address as it is.
Here’s what the rest of the girls will be coping with in the season to come:
Jenelle Evans: You might want to start wearing hats on your feet, folks, because we are truly living in an upside-down opposite world where nothing makes sense.
Jenelle recently got engaged to David Eason; she’s welcomed a third child; and sources say she’s committed herself to creating a stable home life.
She’s basically Martha Stewart with just slightly less time behind bars.
Yes, the occasional social media feud with Eason’s sister aside, Jenelle appears to have found genuine domestic contentment.
We hope Satan is a hockey fan.
Kailyn Lowry: We’re guessing producers didn’t have to do much brainstorming to come up with a storyline here.
Kail’s life has been non-stop drama since the cameras stopped rolling on Season 8 (or 7B, if you must. Sigh).
In case you somehow missed it, Kailyn is pregnant with her third child, and the whole thing has been so eventful that she probably could’ve supported a spin-off season all by herself.
We finally learned the identity of Kailyn’s baby daddy after months of secrecy, but that’s just one of the many shocking developments on As the Baby Bump Turns.
Leah Messer: Unlike in years past, Leah has actually kept something of a low profile between seasons.
According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Hot Messer’s storyline will revolve around her efforts to launch a life-coaching business.
Yes, Leah has had her sh-t together for like seven or eight months now, so she apparently believed it’s time to help others do the same.
Hey, whatever makes her happy.
Interestingly, The Ashley also says that Leah’s second baby daddy, Jeremy Calvert, will be returning to the show, despite earlier promises to quit.
Chelsea Houska: Chelsea would probably beat out Jenelle for the title of Most Stable Teen Mom, were it not for one thing:
Her douche-tastic baby daddy Adam Lind is still a factor in Chelsea’s life, and these days, he’s more ridiculous thn ever.
Lind tested positive for meth recently, and it looks as though he’s soon to lose custody of his daughter with Taylor Halbur.
It remains to be seen if Chelsea will pursue similar legal action against her ex.
Fortunately, her life at home with new husband Cole DeBoer, son Watson, and daughter Aubree remains picture perfect.
Watch Teen Mom 2 online in order to get caught up in what promises to be a doozy of a season … however you choose to number it.
