Christian Carino: Yes, He Really is Lady Gaga’s Fiance!

Lady Gaga continues to receive rave reviews for her role in A Star is Born.

But the singer took a moment on Monday and acknowledged the special role someone else is playing in her life right now.]

That is, she confirmed that she's engaged to Christian Carino.

This is not a shocking piece of news to anyone who reads The Hollywood Gossip.

We wrote about Gaga's plans to marry Carino back in November of 2017.

However, the artist is famously private and had not said a word about this relationship until she spoke this week at Elle‘s 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles.

The topic of Gaga's speech was a very serious one.

She opened up to the crowd about having been sexually assaulted in the past, saying on stage:

"What does it really mean to be a woman in Hollywood? We are not just objects to entertain the world. We are not simply images to bring smiles or grimaces to people's faces.

"We are not members of a giant beauty pageant meant to be pit against one another for the pleasure of the public. We women in Hollywood, we are voices."

Gaga added:

"As a woman who lives with chronic pain, as a woman who was conditioned at a very young age to listen to what men told me to do, I decided today I wanted to take the power back.

"Today I wear the pants."

Amen, right?

While this message is vitally important, it's almost being overshadowed in the celebrity gossip world by the fact that Gaga also referenced talent agent Christian Carino as her "fiance" at one point.

The two started dating in February of last year and, as far as we know, got engaged about nine months later.

Carino was on hand to support Gaga ahead of her Super Bowl LI halftime performance in Houston in 2017, where the couple was photographed cuddling on the field.

But they have mostly kept a very low profile throughout their romance.

Check out the video here to listen to Gaga both name check her future husband AND say some inspiring words about victimhood.

Meghan Markle: She Really is Pregnant!!!!!

Go ahed and celebrate, Internet.

You finally got it right.

Just a day after social media users took a look at Meghan Markle’s ensemble at Princess Eugenie’s wedding and presumed she was pregnant, the former actress and her very handsome husband confirmed the major news…

yes for us

… she really is pregnant!

For reals!

This is not a drill or another example of endless speculation.

Another Royal Baby is on the way!

Just ask Kensington Palace, which released the following statement on Monday morning:

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.

“Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”


More like downright ecstatic and amazing!

As noted directly above, Markle and Harry got married on May 19.

By about May 20, nearly anyone with a pulse was wondering when they would make this exact announcement.

The stars have not been shy about their desire to procreate, with many observers keeping a close eye on Markle’s fashion choices and even hairstyle (yes, hairstyle) to determine whether she was expecting or not.

So now the wild guesses can end.

And the planning stage can begin.

According to a People Magazine source, Markle is 12 weeks along.

This means, knock on many pieces of wood, that the Duchess is past the point where most miscarriages occur, hence her comfort with alerting the world to her status.

She recently underwent a scan and is “feeling well,” this same insider says.

The news comes hours after Meghan and Harry touched down in Australia for their first international tour together, meaning the pregnancy is not getting in the way (yet) of Markle fulfilling her many Royal Duties.

In the couple’s very first joint interview in November of 2017 Harry evealed that the two are keen to “start a family in the near future.”

Hence the rumors and all the chatter that has been following them around since.

palace announce

Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, issued a statement via Kensington Palace shortly after the pregnancy was confirmed, saying to the world:

“Ms. Ragland is very happy about this lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild.”

Markle’s father, meanwhile, is also angry that he hasn’t seen an ultrasound photo yet; while Markle’s half-sister says the baby will be “hideous and disgusting, just like his or her mother.”

Just kidding about those last two reactions.

For real, however, Prince William and Kate Middleton are “delighted” for the couple — as are Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the Palace says.

As a final fact check:

We do not Markle’s exact due date.

Moreover, we do not know whether she has a little boy or girl growing inside of her.

Based on the three times Middleton has been pregnant, however, we can expect to learn these pieces of information as time goes on.

For now, let’s not worry about the details and let’s just celebrate the development itself.



Megyn Kelly is Trying Really Hard to Be Relevant Again

Remember when Megyn Kelly introduced herself to NBC viewers by saying she would not discuss politics as the host of Megyn Kelly Today?

Hmmm… perhaps we ought to back up a bit and first ask instead:

Remember Megyn Kelly?!?

The former Fox News anchor made headlines on a near-daily basis back during her time as a host on that network.

She even hosted a debate between Donald Trump and the pathetic politicians he managed to beat out for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2016!

Kelly was a relevant member of the press, that's our point here.

Then, she left Fox News for NBC… stirred up quite a bit of controversy with her arrival… landed her own hour on The Today Show… and tried to become a Kelly Ripa-like television presence.

Kelly was suddenly all nice and normal and tried to be the woman next door who just has a few kids and a husband at home and who wants to gab about the latest fashion trends, as opposed to the latest political happenings.

Then her ratings tanked.

Then she interview Alex Jones (!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!).

And now she's irrelevant. 

This brings us to Monday morning and Kelly's return to the political arena, as she hosted a round table discussion with NBC's Hallie Jackson, PBS' Amy Holmes and Rolling Stone contributing editor Joe Levy.

The topic at hand?

Embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the multiple accusations of sexual misconduct that have been made against him over the past several days.

"What a mess, that's a clean version of what I was thinking in my head," Kelly said at the top of the conversation, later making it clear that she's on Team Kavanaugh and adding she has no idea why Democrats would push for the FBI to investigate the aforementioned allegations.

"[The FBI's] not a super-secret special police force to investigate super-secret really bad things the nominee may have done. That's why we have congressional investigators," she said.

"The Republicans actually are investigating the Christine Blasey Ford allegations and the Democrats have refused to do so!

"They're standing there in protest saying the FBI needs to do it, which doesn't really help us."

Two quick things here:

  1. Isn't the FBI precisely a special type of police force whose mission is to get to the bottom of confusing and complicated cases of national importance?
  2. The FBI did investigate Anita Hill's claims in 1991 than then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her.

Later in this segment, Kelly cuts off a panelist and emphasizes:

"He's saying he didn’t do it. He's not saying that those allegations against him amount to nothing if he did! He's saying he didn’t do it!"

Oh, well, that changes everything.

If Kavanaugh is saying he didn't do something… why is this even a debate?

Watch the heated exchange now!

Savannah Chrisley and Chase Chrisley: Spinoff Is Really Happening!

It’s only been a couple of years since Savannah Chrisley’s horrifying car crash, but the Chrisley Knows Best star is back on the road.

In fact, she and her brother Chase are embarking on a road trip for their spin-off.

And apparently that spin-off is moving forward — and may even be almost done with production.

From what multiple sources tell Us Weekly, Savannah Chrisley and Chase Chrisley’s spin-off of Chrisley Knows Best is really happening.

In fact, the spin-off, which has been rumored since last year, is said to be going “full speed ahead.”

Chrisley Knows Best has just concluded its sixth season less than a month ago.

A lot of shows — scripted or reality — don’t make it to the 100 episode benchmark, but Chrisley Knows Best has 109 episodes and 2 specials.

And now, a spin-off.

Chrisley Knows Best was previously filmed in Georgia, near Atlanta. Now, the show films in Nashville, Tennessee.

According to reports, that is where Svannah and Chase’s spin-off will begin filming.

The premise of the spin-off is to capture the two young adults on their sibling road trip across most of the breadth of the United States.

They started off in Nashville but will end up in Los Angeles.

In fact, the two have been spotted in L.A., which suggests that at least most of the principal photography is already complete.

The show has been rumored for ages, and Todd Chrisley addressed this spinoff a while back.

“I’m extremely proud of Chase and Savannah as they continue their journey into adulthood,” the family patriarch announced.

“This show will follow them as they live on their own,” Todd continued. And give their parents huge headaches and potential heart attacks.”

Todd condluded: “The plot thickens with love.”

Todd is famous for his frustrations with his family, including and especially Chase, but clearly he is proud of his young adult children.

Todd does admit that he can be controlling of his family’s social media activity, policing it personally.

“If they say something that I don’t think is appropriate or that I think is offensive to someone,” Todd says. “I send them a text message with a screenshot and go, ‘Really? Really?”

That sounds fine for some things — honestly, a few celebrities out there could use Todd Chrisley sending them similar messages — but perhaps a little intrustive for others.

“My thing is,” Todd explains. “Aon’t be trashy about anything.”

That sounds fair enough.

Todd thinks that sometimes people embarrass themselves by being overly eager with fans on social media.

“These guys out here today,” Todd laments. “If a girl likes their photograph, that’s a reason for them to slide into your DM.”

For the record, clicking “like” doesn’t always indicate thirst, and indicating thirst isn’t always an invitation.

Todd then cracks a joke about what some would describe as c–kblocking his kids.

“You’re not sliding into anything over here,” Todd says.


People REALLY Don’t Wanna See Maroon 5 at the Super Bowl

Adam Levine is undeniably a good looking man.

But these traits are apparently not enough to prompt any excitement from NFL fans over the selection of Levine's band at the Super Bowl 2019 halftime act.

Upon Maroon 5 being confirmed as the headliner for the big game, which will take place on February 3 in Atlanta, social media users expressed their annoyance and dismay.

Adam Lind Signs Over His Parental Rights, Is Really Just the Worst

OK, so Adam Lind is a truly awful person with zero redeeming qualities.

We all know this, and we’ve known it for a very, very long time.

It would take forever to list all the ways he is the worst, but let’s at least go through a rundown of his greatest hits, all right?

The world was unfortuantely introduced to him because he impregnated Chelsea Houska, who had her own episode of 16 and Pregnant and then went on to be one of the mothers featured in Teen Mom 2.

They shared an adorable daughter, Aubree, but it was clear from the beginning that he was not exactly the world’s best dad.

Or a dad at all, really.

He wasn’t around too much after Aubree was born, or ever, as far as we saw.

He and Chelsea broke up, then got back together, and so on and so forth.

He was really cruel to her and obviously wasn’t too interested in their kid, but still, she kept taking him back pretty much until she met Cole DeBoer, an actual good person and now, her husband.

At some point in that mess, he also began seeing Taylor Halbur, and he had a baby with her, too — a precious little girl they named Paislee.

Adam wasn’t around for her, either, and it’s since become clear why.

As it turns out, he has a pretty big problem with addiction and domestic violence.

He’s been arrested plenty of times for DUIs and driving without a license, that sort of thing, but last year, he failed a court-ordered drug test.

Because of meth.

Yep, Adam was doing lots and lots of meth, and although he’s not on Teen Mom 2 anymore and hasn’t been for a while, we really don’t have any reason to believe he ever stopped.

He was also arrested more than once last year on domestic violence charges — his most recent ex, Stasia Huber stated in court documents that he broke her arm when he was high, then locked her in the house and destroyed her phone.

In other court documents for another case, Taylor claimed that he once killed two of her puppies, and that on another ocasion, he knocked her to the ground when she was holding Paislee.

So meth, breaking girlfriend’s arms, killing girlfriend’s puppies … how can it get any worse?

Oh, just you wait!

In one of Adam’s earliest appearances on MTV, he sent a text to Chelsea, who had just given birth to Aubree, to call her a “fat stretch mark bitch.”

He also wrote “tell me where and when to sign the rights over for that mistake,” and by “that mistake,” he meant their baby.

Now, all these years later, he actually did sign his rights over.

Not for Aubree, but for his other daughter, Paislee.

Yesterday, Taylor took Adam to court to get things done, as reported by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.

It was hardly the first time Taylor took Adam to court — they’ve been many times to deal with custody arrangements, child support, visitation — but it was the last.

According to the report, Adam was asked several questions by the judge before everything was made official, and he was required to state that he knew his decision was permanent, and that from here on out, he’d have no rights to Paislee.

He did, and just like that, he signed away his rights to his youngest child.

As a bit of a happy ending to all of this, South Dakota state law requires that when parental rights are terminated, the rights get transferred to someone else, or to some authorized agency.

That was no big deal though, because Taylor’s husband adopted Paislee!

He’s been in Paislee’s life for a long time, and it seems like he’s been her dad during all that time anyway, it’s just official now.

Paislee Gets Adopted

Unfortunately, this doesn’t affect anything with Aubree.

If Chelsea wants Adam to terminate his parental rights to her, too, then she’ll have to get her own court date.

But in the past, she’s often followed Taylor’s lead — Taylor got a visitation center involved for Adam long before Chelsea did, for example — and they do speak with each other.

We have a feeling that if she wanted to do this, too, then Cole would happily adopt Aubree.

Honestly, it’s probably only a matter of time until that happens.

Can Adam get any lower than this?


Azealia Banks to Elon Musk: Sorry! You’re Not Really a Balding Drug Addict!

One of the most amusing gossip items of August had to do with the highly unexpected feud between Azealia Banks and Elon Musk.

In case you’re unfamiliar with those names, they perfectly represent the two main archetypes of American egomania:

Azealia Banks-Elon Musk-Grimes

Banks is the gifted artist whose rage over the fact that she still has to ride the subway like a plebe has driven her to repeatedly sabotage her own career.

Conversely, Musk is quite successful financially but is consistently driven mad over the world’s unwillingness to recognize him as the heir to Einstein, Edison, Henry Ford, and Jesus H. Christ.

In other words, they may not seem to have much in common — Banks is a self-made creative, whereas Mush is a left-brain cyborg who could’ve spent his entire life blowing his family’s emerald mine fortune.

But at the end of the day, Banks and Musk are just two sides of the same narcissistic coin.

Perhaps that’s why they clashed upon first meeting, then later realized they were destined to join forces.

Allow us to explain:

Earlier this month, NYC-based Banks spent some time in LA with the intention of collaborating on a song with Musk’s girlfriend, Grimes.

So she paid a visit to Musk’s sprawling mansion and found it to have less of a “Tony Stark” vibe and more of an “Allison Williams’ parent’s house in Get Out” feel.

In addition to comparing her experience to Jordan Peele’s horror classic, Banks says she witnessed a wealth of appallingly self-destructive behavior from both Musk and Grimes.

Banks referred to Musk as a “giant d–k” and a “beta male who took steroids and hair plugs to convince himself he’s alpha.”

She also accused Musk of conducting business while tripping on LSD, and Grimes of being a meth addict.

She later alleged that Musk had stolen her phone so that he could “delete evidence” of their encounter.

Needless to say, after all that it was quite a surprise to see that Banks had issued a public apology to Musk:

“I feel terrible about everything,” reads the now-deleted open letter that was posted to Banks’ Instagram page.

“Over the time spent liaising said collaborations [with Grimes], I was welcomed to a lot of personal information about you,” Banks wrote.

“The stuff made me feel awkward and uncomfortable about being privy to you, yet I never had the intentions of ever using the information against you.

She added:

“What started off as a cat-fight lead to some seriously unexpected consequences and I seriously apologize.”

Interestingly, Banks’ refused to use Grimes name throughout the letter, referring to her would-be collaborator only with a pair of empty quotation marks.

After posting the letter, Banks deleted her Instagram account, but now appears to have re-instated her account.

We’ll continue to monitor this weird-ass situation and let you know if it gets any weirder.


Ryan Edwards: Is He REALLY the Father of Mackenzie Standifer’s Unborn Child?!

Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer … well, they've had an eventful relationship, we'll say that much.

They've only been together for a couple of years, but boy, have they been through a lot.

And now, after two weddings and several arrests, they're expecting their first child together, a boy due in October.

But could there be a chance that Ryan isn't the baby's father?

1. A Fairytale Romance (Or Not)

Ryan edwards and mackenzie standifer selfie
It feels like we’ve been hearing about drama centering around Ryan and/or Mackenzie for decades, but if you can believe it, these two crazy kids have barely been together for two years now.

2. Moving Fast

Mackenzie standifer pic
Yep, Mackenzie got divorced from her first husband in July of 2016, she met Ryan sometime after that, and by December, they were engaged.

3. Making It Official

Mackenzie standifer ryan edwards
They were married in May of 2017, a quick little affair down by the river for reasons we’re still not entirely sure about. Ryan was super high when it happened.


Mackenzie edwards pic
But at that time, Mackenzie insisted that she didn’t know Ryan was even using drugs, much less that he was shooting heroin. Like, he was arrested that March for having heroin and a bunch of needles in his car, but she claimed that she had no idea.

5. Anyway …

Mackenzie standifer and ryan edwards going strong
But regardless, they got married, then Ryan went to rehab, but he graduated from his program early, and Mackenzie seemed to think that was a good thing.

6. Cool, Cool

Oh, and during this whole time (and now, probably) Mackenzie blamed Ryan’s drug problem on Maci Bookout, because apparently she was a “trigger” for him, and also because she knew about everything and didn’t magically stop him somehow.
