Maci Bookout: Let Me Tell You What I REALLY Think About Ryan Edwards!

Maci Bookout is such a treasure, right?

There's so much Teen Mom gossip out there, all the time, and so much of it is bad — Jenelle Evans' child abuse allegations and newfound love of guns, Farrah Abraham's legal troubles and general awfulness.

It's actually pretty rare to hear just a happy, nice story about someone from the show, but if you do hear one, it's probably about Chelsea Houska or Maci.

Since she's so great, Maci recently made an appearance on Kailyn Lowry's podcast, and while she was there, she discussed a whole, whole lot of things.

The pregnancy rumors? Her new house? Ryan Edwards' latest arrest?

She talks about all that, and more!

So let's get into what she had to say …

1. Everyone Loves Maci!

Seriously, isn’t Maci just the greatest?

2. A Strong Possibility

Is she the greatest mom out of all the Teen Moms? Maybe, yeah.

3. Thanks, Girl!

Since she’s so great and everything, she decided to do us all a solid and have a chat with Kailyn on her podcast, you know, just to update us on everything that’s been going on in her life.

And, as you probably know, there’s been a WHOLE lot going on.

5. Moving On

For example, you may have heard that Maci and her husband, Taylor McKinney, recently sold their house. What’s up with that?

6. Oh

As she explained to Kailyn, they were looking to build a house on some land they own, but while they were checking out other houses to get an idea of what they’d want for their new house, they found one, already built and everything, that they really loved.

Colton Underwood: What Does He Really Think of Garrett Yrigoyen?

Colton Underwood does not know what it’s like to feel the warm, naked embrace of a woman.

As proudly admitted during his run this past season on The Bachelorette, Underwood is a virgin.

But while Underwood has never thrusted his unit into the precious depths of a companion, he has spent a lot of time with Garrett Yrigoyen.

So… what does Underwood think of the man who beat him out for Becca’s affection?

Who is now engaged to Kufrin?

Who many viewers have been disgusted by since it was discovered that Garrett Liked a bunch of intolerant and offensive memes that were anti-immigrant and anti-the LGBT community?

Colton, who seems almost too nice to be real, told The New York Post last week that he actually has no beef with Garrett whatsoever.

“In regards to who Garrett is, and I’m not defending his likes whatsoever, a lot of them were wrong, but that’s not who Garrett is, that does not define Garrett, and it should not overshadow their relationship,” Underwood said, adding of The Bachelorette and her fiance:

“This is a time when they should be celebrating their engagement and being happy.”

Nearly everyone is in agreement that what Yrigoyen supported on social media was pretty messed up.

To the Season 14 champion’s credit, however, Garrett never made any excuses for his actions.

He issued a mea culpa and, along with Kufrin, simply urged folks to keep an open mind.

“He’s owned it, he’s apologized for it, he’s made his statement. I think people need to realize that,” Underwood continued to Page Six, adding:

“It’s a mistake, you live and you learn, and Garrett has definitely learned from this.”

Like we said: Underwood is almost too nice to be a real person.

Or, conversely, if one wanted to be cynical, one could say that Underwood is simply positioning himself to be the next Bachelor.

Being kind is sort of his brand at this point and he may be thinking that the longer he rides it, the better chance he has of being selected by ABC.

Producers have admitted that Underwood is one of six men in contention for this coveted gig.

However, before it can even be a possibility, Colton must complete his ongoing run on Bachelor in Paradise.

“Coming off [The Bachelorette], I realized how cool and fun of an experience that was,” Colton says to Page Six of agreeing to be on this new program

“It was such a good time of my life to self-discover and grow as a person, and I wanted to continue that and to continue to find love.”

Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesday at 8/7c on ABC.

We really do hope that Colton finds what, or who, he is looking for.


19 REALLY Mean Things Meghan Markle’s Family Has Said About Her

Meghan Markle may have married Prince Harry, but it's become apparent by now that this is actually NOT the star's most impressive accomplishment.

No, her most impressive accomplishment has been managing to continually take the high road in the face of one personal attack after another — but members of her own family!

Markle's dad, Thomas, has lashed out at the new Duchess as selfish and ungrateful.

Her half-sister, Samantha, has basically said Markle wants to murder puppies and should be held responsible for their father's death, whenever it happens.

These are cruel and terrible people.

But don't take our word for it. Take their own words for it!

Scroll down for a look at the harshest things Thomas Markle and Samantha Markle have said about our dear Meghan…

1. "It would be easier for Meghan if I died."

The royal bride
Thomas said this about his daughter toward the end of July, whining on this occasion to The Times of London.

2. "They have Meghan treating her father in a way that Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, would have loathed. That’s not what Diana stood for."

Royally married
Yup, he went there. Thomas once said that the Royal Family should be ashamed for turning Markle into the anti-Princess Diana, who is considered to basically be the best person in human history.

3. "How tragic is that, to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the royal family

Duchess of sussex
Thomas peered into the future for this quote to The Daily Mail, saying that Meghan and Harry will have a child someday and his daughter will keep his GRANDdaughter from him and that is (will be?) a shameful act.

4. "She became the woman that she is today thanks to everything I did for her."

Royal newlyweds together
This was a classic one, also told to The Daily Mail, adding in this summer 2018 interview: “Did I get any recognition for it? Any thanks? She doesn’t even speak to me now. How cold is that?”

5. "I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now. This is a pained smile."

As a duchess
Thomas has made it a mission to say as often as possible that Markle is basically being tortured by the Royal Family. He’s convinced she is unhappy and has basically joined a cult.

6. "She’s not qualified to suggest that I don’t under any law in this country."

Samantha grant
Samantha said this after she was told that Markle preferred for her to zip her stupid mouth. She added: “This is not Great Britain. I am a United States citizen. And, that’s all there is to it. She’s way out of her league to tell me that I can’t speak.”

Kourtney Kardashian: Is She REALLY Pregnant With Scott Disick’s Baby?!

It’s been an interesting week in the life of Kourtney Kardashian.

First, Kourtney feuded with Kim Kardashian after a bizarre Keeping Up With the Kardashians scene in which Kim insulted her appearance.

Shortly thereafter, the world learned that Kourtney and Younes Bendjima have broken up.

Not surprisingly, that news was followed by rumors that Kourtney was planning to get back together with Scott Disick, the father of her three children, who’s currently dating Sofia Richie.

It’s a lot to keep up with, and believe it or not, Kourt’s life is about to become even more bonkers.

According to a new report from Hollywood Life, Kourtney is pregnant with her fourth child.

And insiders say the baby is Scott’s.

The rumors began when Kourtney sported “what appeared to be a bump” during a recent social outing in LA.

“It was strange to see because she’s usually so perfectly svelte,” a source told the outlet.

A different source stated, “Everyone is whispering that she’s pregnant with her fourth child.

“They’ve been meeting up on the down-low for a while now,” the insider claims.

One source adds that Scott’s relationship has not prevented him from hooking up with Kourtney.

Rumor has it the former couple has been secretly sleeping together during family vacations.

“They made it look like a family trip because their kids were there, but they hooked up,” the source said before adding,

“Everyone is buzzing that she’s carrying Scott’s baby.”

A wild report, to be sure, but it’s lent credence by recent rumors about Sofia being wary of Scott’s relationship with his ex.

“[Sofia] wants to live a life with Scott, have a future with Scott and have kids with Scott,” says a source close to the couple.

“So if he is thinking of getting back with Kourtney she wants none of it.”

Does Sofia have reason to be suspicious?

Well, if Kourt is really rocking a bump already, we may find out in about in six months.


Garrett Yrigoyen: Really, I’m Sorry for That Instagram Scandal!

On Monday night’s season finale of The Bachelorette, Garrett Yrigoyen won over Becca Kufrin.

Following an emotional two hours that saw Blake Horstmann break into tears and Becca nearly breakdown from having to make a decision, Yrigoyen was selected as this edition’s champion and he responded in the most appropriate way possible…

… by getting down on one knee and asking for Kufrin’s hand in marriage!

But just because Garrett knows one thing:

He still has to win over Bachelorette Nation.

The controversial contestant may have proven his decency to Becca over the course of his run on the series, but many viewers still think of Yrigoyen NOT as someone romantic and well-meaning.

But as someone who Liked a number of offense and inappropriate social media messages many months ago.

Back in late May, it came out that Garrett seemingly approved of Instagram posts that were anti-immigrant, anti-feminism and anti-LGBT rights.

He issued an apology shortly after this troubling scandal broke, telling critics:

“I am sorry to those who I offended and I also take full responsibility…

“I am not perfect, and I will never be anywhere close, but now I will always be more informed and aware of what I am liking and supporting, not just on Instagram, but in life.”

Fast forward all this time later and Garrett’s Likes are back in the news because he is back in the news, as the brand new fiance of Becca Kufrin.

He’s therefore being prompted to address his views on minorities and those who have a different sexual orientation.

Without getting into these kinds of specifics, the Season 14 winner simply says in the latest issue of People Magazine:

“It was tough. I didn’t mean to offend anyone.

He also tries to make it clear that the tap of one button on his computer or his phone does not sum up his world view when it comes to these societal topics:

“Just because I Liked it, doesn’t necessarily mean that I supported it.

“I was raised in a very open-minded family that was accepting to everybody. We’re very non-judgmental. I’m genuinely sincere.”

Becca asked viewers this spring to remain “open-minded” about Garrett, likely because she was already engaged to him at the time.

Now, though, Garrett says this idea of being as open and as candid with each other is exactly why their relationship works.

“We started a foundation of being honest and open and transparent,” he tells People, adding:

“Anything that’s come about, or just dealing with anything, that’s how we address it: head on. It makes our relationship so much stronger, and we continue to grow together.”

That all sounds well and good — but, as you might expect, quite a few fans think Becca has made a mistake.

garrett reaction

Tweeted one disgruntled Bachelorette fans, not even bothering to make a quip or a snarky remark:

Reminder: A man who joked about throwing immigrant children over trumps wall is about to win  #TheBachelorette and some of these children will likely never be reunited with their families.

@thebkoof choosing him is her being complicit and taking the easy and privileged way out.

If it makes this individual feel any better, Becca will likely NOT end up with Garrett, just based on the history of Bachelor and Bachelorette couples.

Or do you think these two crazy kids can buck that tradition?

Kailyn Lowry vs. Briana DeJesus Fight Details: What REALLY Happened at the Teen Mom 2 Reunion?

At this point, you're probably aware that Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus "fought" at the taping of this year's Teen Mom 2 reunion show.

Now, as another season comes to an end and another reunion show approaches, new details are emerging about exactly what went down between the longtime rivals.

Did Kailyn and Briana really come to blows?

Was one of their castmates so disgusted by the escalating violence that she threatened to quit the show?

Is Bri's sister really the ultimate attack dog?

Join as we answer these questions and more in our breakdown of this long-awaited title fight.

1. Kail on the Side

Kailyn lowry on insta
Sources say Kail had resolved to distance herself from the drama at the taping that took place back in May. Obviously, that was an unattainable goal.

2. Spilling the Tea

Kailyn lowry podcast
Kail opened up about the events of the reunion on a recent episode of her Coffee Convos podcast, and as you may have guessed, things got seriously ugly.

3. The Showdown

According to both reports from both women, Briana and Kailyn nearly came to blows on two separate occasions.

4. Backing Down

Kailyn lowry looks sad
The first such occasion saw Kailyn approach Bri and threaten her. But when the time came to “throw hands,” as Bri puts it, Kailyn simply wasn’t up to the task of socking one of her co-stars in the face … or so DeJesus says.

5. Growing Up?

Kailyn lowry on a couch
That’s a good thing, obviously, as violence that’s not in self-defense is generally something only crazy people resort to. Which is why producers keep Jenelle Evans around.

6. Round 2

The Second time they came face-to-face, Briana reportedly attacked Kailyn. And this time, there was no backing down …

Josiah Duggar Reveals What Marriage is Really Like

The truth has finally come out.

In an exclusive interview with Josiah Duggar, the 21-year comes clean about what it’s like to live life as a married man.

He and new wife Lauren Swanson surprised fans late last month by getting married in Arkanas, not long after we were led to believe that the ceremony would be delayed until December.

So, is this union everything Josiah thought and hoped it would be?

Yes, he tells the aforementioned tabloid.

Interviewed together for one of the first times as husband and wife, Lauren and Josiah say they are “loving every minute” of wedded bliss, adding simply:

“Time has flown by.”

That must mean they’re having fun, based on a certain classic saying.

Duggar and Swanson exchanged vows at at John Brown University Cathedral of the Ozarks in Siloam Springs.

Unlike other members of Josiah’s famous family, he didn’t reveal the wedding date ahead of time, leaving followers guessing and wondering just when the twosome would make their romance official.

That is, when they would kiss for the first time, per Duggar family dating rules.

“What a joy it is to be husband and wife!” Josiah and Lauren told People Magzine at the time, adding to this publication:

“We are so thankful the Lord has brought us to this place and we can’t wait to begin our journey as husband and wife!”

The wedding was actually officiated by Lauren’s father, Dwain Swanson, while Lauren was accompanied by eight bridesmaids.

It was a beautiful scene, said everyone in attendance on this special day.

For weeks prior to their wedding, rumors circulated that Swanson might be pregnant.

This would a bit scandalous under any circumstance, to be expecting prior to tying the knot…, but for the Duggars?!? 

Engaging in premarital sex is basically the biggest sin one can commit.

As of this writing, however, neither Lauren nor Josiah has confirmed (or denied) this pressing piece of chatter.

Lauren and Josiah started courting in January and got engaged in March, at the exact spot where her parents were engaged, interestingly enough.

Since their nuptials, the famous pair have turned its attention to making plans for the future.

One has to imagine that an impending baby will be announced some time very soon, perhaps as soon as you read this.

“It’s been especially fun to simply work on setting up our house together and just settle into life,” the couple told Us, concluding:

“We’re enjoying dreaming and thinking of the future together.”

The new season of Counting On premieres on TLC Monday, July 30th at 9/8c. Will you be tuning in?


Jeremy Vuolo: Man, Newborns Really Don’t Sleep, Huh?

Jeremy Vuolo has made a classic first-time father mistake.

Ahead of the birth of his very recent baby, the reality star forgot to catch up on his sleep.


The long-time TLC personality welcomed a daughter into the world alongside wife Jinger Duggar last week, as the couple made the very exciting announcement that Felicity Nicole Vuolo has arrived.

“God is so kind,” Jeremy wrote online, adding of his baby’s name and her measurements:

“Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m. Felicity weighs 8 lbs and 3 oz, and is 19.5 inches long.”

As you can tell by the photo Jeremy and Jinger provided with this statement, their daughter is absolutely precious and perfect as well.

Wouldn’t you agree?

Well, perhaps she isn’t perfect.

Vuolo has posted his first pair of messages since becoming a parent and both point to the same parental hiccup that afflicts many young men and women:

A lack of sleep!

That darn newborn just keeps waking up hungry and said!

“To sleep, my dear friend and faithful companion. So long, it was a good run. Fondly, Jeremy,” Vuolo wrote as a pretty humorous meme on Monday evening.

He then gave a shout-out to his new best friend:

“Dear coffee, it’s just you and me now. Don’t let me down. Gratefully, Jeremy.”

Fans, of course, were quick to laugh along with Jeremy and also to assure him of two things:

  1. Sleep will come eventually.
  2. Being a father is still worthwhile, even if it means you can barely see straight half of every day.

In his baby announcement, Vuolo confirmed that “mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well,” adding:

“We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”

The stars went public with Jinger’s pregnancy back in January, after 14 months after they became husband and wife.

This was actually a very long time for the couple to wait, at least by the standards of Jinger’s baby-crazy family.

In April, Jinger and Jeremy then told everyone that they were having a girl. Hooray!

“We love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love,” the couple stated.

Looking ahead, meanwhile, Jinger will be able to consult with various loved ones about what it’s like to have a baby around the house (and when the heck one finds time to sleep!).

After all, Joy-Anna Duggar welcomed a son named Gideon with husband Austin Forsyth in February of this year.

And then Kendra Caldwell gave birth to a son named Garrett David with husband Joseph Duggar on June 8.

As for when fans can get an inside look at Jinger’s journey to parenthood?
