We’ve heard a number of explanations for why Kylie Jenner is hiding herself and plans to hide her baby. One is that she wants to follow in Kim’s footsteps and control which photos are taken.
Another is that, allegedly, Kylie’s eating is out of control and she can’t stand to be seen in public.
But a new, much less cruel report has come out explaining why Kylie is remaining in seclusion. And this actually makes a lot of sense.
Sometimes, when a star won’t comment on their own life, the vacuum gets filled by reports, rumors, and speculation.
It’s widely believed that Kylie Jenner has, for years, had body image issues that arose from growing up famous.
Not everybody who’s hot at 20 looks like they’re going to be a knockout when they’re younger.
Plus, well, folks are pretty sure that Kylie’s had some work done to get to be the beauty that she is today.
(Which, of course, is why Wendy Williams says that Kylie Jenner’s baby will be ugly)
So it’s easy to believe reports that claim that Kylie Jenner hates her pregnant body. We’ve been hearing this for months.
And we all know how pregnancy can transform a body. Stretch marks, acne, morning sickness.
Some things, like how parts of Kylie’s lower skeleton have literally rearranged themselves in preparation for her to give birth, are permanent.
And it may very well be true.
Whether or not the report that she’s “eating uncontrollably” and has “gained 60 pounds” is true, pregnancy can make some people — especially people who are prone to insecurities about their appearance — feel ashamed of how they look.
It doesn’t have to be rational, folks. Few feelings are.
However, in a new report, a source tells Entertainment Tonight that Kylie Jenner isn’t so much hiding as she is taking a long overdue break.
“[Kylie’s] worked hard her entire life, and being a mother will be a lot of work, so now is a chance for her to recharge.”
If you think about it, Kylie has had the same job — as a reality star — since she was a child. She’s also grown to dominate social media — particularly Snapchat (though it looks like Snapchat’s time may be at an end).
And, of course, she’s a makeup mogul.
Kylie Cosmetics, which is projected to be worth a billion dollars within 5 years, probably doesn’t really take that much out of her. She’s mostly branding and ownership, right?
Being a reality star and always making herself visible to fans through social media? That can exhaust you beyond belief.
Interesting that the source describes this as Kylie “recharging.” Is Kylie Jenner an introvert?
She’s always seemed a little more subdued than some of her siblings.
Introverts aren’t necessarily shy or whatever, they’re just drained by social activity. They “recharge” by spending time with fewer people or being completely alone.
Even Kylie’s baby daddy Travis Scott says Kylie has less personality in bed than her sister Kendall. (Yeah, he’s banged them both, ugh)
Her constant social activity, constantly being on camera — her own or someone else’s — and her entire celebrity lifestyle may have left Kylie with a sense of fatigue.
This is one of those situation where it feels like each of the major claims contains at least a kernel of truth.
Kylie probably is having issues with her pregnant body’s shape. She shouldn’t. Baby bumps are normal with pregnancies, and so is weight gain.
And you know what else? Kylie probably wants to slowly roll out information about her baby.
And it’s probably also true that she’s enjoying taking this time off. (Though, if you’re pregnant, it’s not like it’s a real vacation)
It’s expected that Kylie’s big pregnancy reveal will take place over the two-part Keeping Up With The Kardashians event next week. Perhaps we’ll know more, then.
Just a few days ago, we got the most wonderful news that we’d heard in a very, very long time …
Jersey Shore is coming back!
For real this time, too, not just for one lame special.
MTV announced the big news during the series premiere of their new show, Floribama Shore, a Jersey Shore “spin-off” set down south.
Or really, Snooki announced the big news in a short little teaser that aired along with the show, screaming “We’re back, bitches!”
It’s enough to warm your heart and give you hope in the hopeless time, isn’t it?
We don’t have too many details yet — we know the new show will be called Jersey Shore Family Vacation, and it will air sometime in 2018.
Snooki — or Nicole Polizzi, as she may prefer to go by now — will be there, of course, as will her bestie, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, and her fellow meatball, Deena Nicole Cortese.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino will also be going on that family vacation, along with Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and the delightful Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio.
So who’s missing? You know, besides Angelina, lovingly known by her former castmates as the Staten Island Dump.
You know who’s missing — Sammi Giancola.
Yes, for some totally unfair reason, we’re getting new Jersey Shore in 2018, but we won’t be seeing Sammi Sweetheart.
And we came so close to heaven, didn’t we?
Ever since the news of Sammi’s absence broke, Jersey Shore fans everywhere have been in mourning — and they’ve also been demanding answers.
Up until now, we haven’t had any real explanation for why she won’t be there with the rest of those lovable guidos and guidettes.
Some sources claimed that she was working on a deal to appear on Celebrity Big Brother, but most fans assume that she just doesn’t want to film with Ronnie again after all these years.
It makes sense — if you’ve seen literally any footage from the show, you know that Sammi and Ronnie had a ridiculously toxic relationship.
Remember how many times they broke up and got back together, just to break up again? How many times they made each other cry?
What about the time that he trashed her room after a fight? Or the time that she punched him in the face just for talking to JWoww?
Ooh, ooh, how about the time that he referred to her “Fred Flinstone toe” and she lost her mind?
Yeah, so Ronnie and Sammi have some history, and it would make sense if they didn’t want to be around each other after everything that’s happened between them.
But is that the whole reason Sammi’s not coming back?
According to Snooki, yep.
On a podcast earlier this week, Snooki said “Everyone’s asking why Sammi’s not doing it. You have to ask her that, I’m not gonna speak for her.”
But then she went on to say that “Sammi is just in such a happy place that I feel like she doesn’t want to jump back into that drama if it does happen.”
“And being that there was a lot of Ron and Sam drama when we did film, it was just really hard on both of them,” she added. “So I just think she doesn’t want that anymore.”
That’s more than fair, but still disappointing.
Don’t give up hope yet though — filming still hasn’t started yet, and Snooki revealed that the rest of the crew has been “begging her to come back on the show” because “it’s gonna be different.”
“Everyone pray that Sammi comes back,” she said, “because I feel like she might change her mind.”
“Sam, if you’re listening, come to the show. Like, stop being — stop it. Stop it right now before I spank you.”
Yes, Sam, please. Stop
Or, to speak to her in her own language, “OH MY GAAAAAHD, STAAAAAHP.”
We all know that Jay-Z cheated. Recently, he’s openly admitted that his marriage to Beyonce was built on lies. Their relationship is much healthier, now, but it’s still going to take more time to heal.
In a new interview, Jay-Z has spoken about what exactly drove him to infidelity.
And his take is … much more honest and self-aware than anything that we’re used to hearing from celebrities who’ve strayed..
In an interview with the New York Times, Jay-Z spoke of his infidelity. Not in lyrics, but in words.
He spoke about psychotherapy and about what he came to understand, reflecting upon his childhood in poverty:
“You have to survive. So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens?”
A lot does, and it can vary from person to person. But Jay-Z speaks about how this impacted his life.
“You shut down all emotions. So even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect.”
PTSD can absolutely cause empathy issues (too little empathy, too strong,
“In my case, like it’s, it’s deep.”
Some people are impacted in different ways by trauma. Also, childhood trauma happens when your mind is still developing. Sometimes, you learn how to be a person in the wrong ways, if that makes sense.
But Jay-Z has come to understand how that led to him stepping out on Beyonce.
“And then all the things happen from there: infidelity.”
He’s clearly not making excuses. He’s talking about how his own personal emotional detachment, which was probably life-saving as a child, led him to make bad decisions as an adult.
Last June, less than a week before the Summer Solstice marked the official end of spring, Jay-Z and Beyonce welcomed their twins into the world.
Sir and Rumi ended up with a somewhat extended stay at the hospital before they were finally released.
But though we’ve only gotten the occasional glimpse at Beyonce and Jay-Z’s twins, they seem to be doing much better now.
It wasn’t until Jay-Z’s 4:44 album came out, in which the rapper admitted to cheating on Beyonce and also referred to his epic feud with Kanye West, that the world really understood how great a triumph the birth of Sir and Rumi was.
Because a careful interpretation of Jay-Z’s lyrics revealed that Beyonce had suffered miscarriages, which Jay-Z believed were brought on by anxiety and other intense emotions due to his cheating.
(We know that real life doesn’t work like soap operas, where a little worry or tripping on the stairs automatically leads to a miscarriage … but distress really can endanger a pregnancy. Especially if someone is already struggling to carry a pregnancy to term)
Jay-Z revealed that his work on 4:44 was therapeutic for his marriage, and helped him to process what he had done to Beyonce, their marriage, and to himself.
Of course, it’s not like 4:44 was one epic cheat-a-thon.
(Though Jay-Z did at times almost seem to be humble-bragging, we don’t believe that this was his intention)
There were other topics.
One was, of course, Jay-Z’s diss track against Kanye West, whose erratic behavior and terrible impulse control was apparently enough.
Kanye crossed some lines, and friends became enemies.
(Taylor Swift even referred to Kanye and Kim losing friends in her song, “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things,” which is a strong contender for the best song on Reputation)
On a much, much more positive note, Jay-Z’s mom Gloria Carter came out as a lesbian on one of the tracks of his album.
Jay-Z has known since he was a teenager, but it was not public knowledge.
That she herself got to come out on her son’s album is just so beautiful — and a refreshing break from, well, some of the less positive subjects covered on 4:44.
We would say that there were other factors behind Jay-Z’s cheating.
The cultural acceptance of powerful men leading double-lives, for example. Conflicting work schedules with Beyonce may have played a part.
But Jay-Z knows that none of these are excuses.
Folks, if you want to sleep around, either marry someone who doesn’t mind or shares your proclivities (you could swap stories of your adventures!), or don’t get married.
Jay-Z is prioritizing his family now, however. His wife and his three children will certainly appreciate that.

If you’re familiar with singer Sia’s craeer and public persona, then you’re probably aware that the 41-year-old Aussie doesn’t exactly court the spotlight.
Quite the reverse, in fact, as she routinely conceals her face with outlandish wigs or paper bags when appearing in public.
But while Sia may prefer to remain hidden and keep the focus on her music, she proved today that she’s willing to bare all in order to thwart criminals who seek to profit from invading her privacy.
It seems Sia caught wind of the fact that a secretive group was looking to sell several illicit photos taken by paparazzi while she was in a private residence.
Rather than allow these bastards to cash in on their crimes, she undercut their efforts by posting the images online for free.
“Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!” Sia tweeted along with a link to the images.
Obviously, Sia shouldn’t have had to take such drastic actions, but this is certainly a masterclass in turning a negative into a positive!
She even snuck in a plug for her forthcoming holiday album, Everyday Is Christmas.
Sia handled the situation like a boss, but for many, the story is bringing to mind other instances in which public figures saw their privacy invaded by hackers in the most appalling fashion imaginable, the most notable of which may have been the so-called “Fappening” that took place in 2014.
Once again, the issue here is about consent.
Sia has posted nude photos in the past, but she did so of her own volition.
This time, her hand was forced, which makes what happened to her nothing less than a sex crime.
Astonishingly, in 2017 there are grown adults who believe that if a public figure has posted nude photos in the past, they’re now considered fair game, and anyone in possession of additional explicit images can post them with impunity.
This makes about as much sense as arguing that because a woman has had sex before, she can’t be raped.
Sexual assault in Hollywood has been in the news a lot lately, with many brave souls coming forward with shocking stories of abuse.
It’s important to bear in mind that being publicly exposed against one’s will can be a traumatizing experience that takes a lifelong toll on the victim–and the perpetrators of such misdeeds are criminals who must be brought to justice, just the same as Harvey Weinstein and his ilk.
You guys are not ready to see Farrah Abraham in boy drag. But you have to look. Don't leave us alone with this knowledge.
She's sporting a wig and a beard and … honestly that's not even the most eye-catching part of her ensemble.
In a new promo for Single AF that you have to see to believe, she's sporting her most bizarre look yet. Why?
While nothing that she does will ever quite top Farrah Abraham's LinkedIn profile, Farrah is nothing of not a reliable source of … odd behavior.
As in, she'll always give you something to talk about. It just might not be appropriate for all audiences.
Following repeated plugs for vaginal rejuvenation treatments that we can't imagine that she really needed, Farrah Abraham did a live sex show in which she masturbated on camera for paying viewers.
(And that site is set to share a live Farrah Abraham anal sex show, featuring Farrah and, we assume, a variety of toys, early next week!)
On a subject that's easier to bring up at your average dinner table, Farrah joined Kailyn Lowry in slamming Jenelle Evans for whining about "unfair edits" on Teen Mom 2.
When you've lost the high ground to Farrah Abraham, you should really reconsider … everything.
But Teen Mom 2 and camgirling aren't Farrah Abraham's only claims to fame.
Farrah is one of the stars of Single AF.
(Remember, "af" means "as f–k," as in "I wish the delivery guy would get here because I'm hungry af" or "I look cute af right now")
This MTV UK is … well, you know that show Famously Single? Imagine that, but with an announcer voiceover on the promos that sounds like cockney gibberish.
In a new promo for the series, which Farrah shares over social media, Farrah shows up quite a few times.
She rebuffs a suitor's advances by totally ignoring him while sporting a skimpy cobalt bikini at one point.
That's more or less something that you'd expect to see on a reality series about dating.
What we didn't expect to see was Farrah in … boy-drag.
Like, this is the sort of look — minus the money — that we'd expect to see at, like, a university drag show.
(Yes, drag kings are a thing)
So, it's not a top-notch production, but she's pulled together a male-ish wig, and used makeup to apply a beard.
We … genuinely have no idea what's gong on with the money.
And we don't know why she's in drag, either.
Some think that she may have been dressed up as her costars, YouTuber Elliot Crawford.
But that would not actually explain why she's in the get-up.
If anything, that would leave us with more questions.
We're not clear on how dressing up as your costar is going to help address your single status. But maybe they're engaged in some therapeutic roleplay … or parodying each other to give them dating advice.
Watch the video below and see if you can figure out what's going on.
You know, to Kailyn Lowry, the situation with Briana DeJesus and her deadbeat baby daddies must be looking pretty good right about now.
Because Kailyn’s situation with Chris Lopez doesn’t just sound worse — it sounds frightening.
Are you ready to learn the real reason that Kailyn Lowry is keeping Lux away from Chris? Because it’s so much more than unsigned paperwork.
You know how Chris Lopez has reportedly refused to sign a legal document to acknowledge paternity of Lux, Kailyn’s baby whom she finally, finally named?
We’ve been hearing that the Teen Mom 2 star has banned Chris from seeing Lux until he officially accepts, in writing, that he is Lux’s father — with all of the potential responsibilities, financial and otherwise, that come with paternity.
Banning a baby daddy for that reason is absolutely valid, don’t get us wrong.
But now we’re hearing about a new reason that makes a whole lot more sense, but hasn’t been filmed at all for Teen Mom 2.
And, unfortunately, it looks like this real underlying reason is much more serious than an unsigned legal document.
The Ashley Reality Roundup reached out to Kail to learn more, and Kailyn explained the tension with Chris. Sort of.
“I don’t want to keep Lux from Chris. That’s not the goal.”
Right. That’s seemed like more of a means to an end than an end goal.
“The goal is to take some time right now to figure out what works for us.”
That’s interesting, since she’s not talking about signing paternity papers and talking more about what sort of arrangement will work.
That sounds like it has way more to do with the two of them.
“I’ve obviously been through this before and I do want Lux to eventually have a relationship with his dad. Right now the circumstances aren’t right for that, though.”
That’s vague but not necessarily ominous in and of itself. Kailyn clearly chose her words carefully.
But we are sorry to say that what Kailyn is so diplomatically avoiding saying is … worrisome at best.
As it turns out, Chris Lopez publicly bashing Kailyn Lowry and burning her book on Instagram is just the tip of the iceberg.
A production source told The Ashley Reality Roundup what’s been going on behind the scenes.
“She’s trying her best to keep the real reason off the show”
“So far, the drama with Chris hasn’t really been covered for the show, but that’s only because it is hard to do when Chris won’t sign on to appear or have his name on Teen Mom 2.”
Are you ready to hear the awful stuff?
“Chris was violent with Kail multiple times, once while she was holding the baby.”
That is monstrous. Even without the involvement of Lux, that is just … evil.
If it’s true that Chris Lopez has been violent with Kailyn, she’s absolutely right to keep herself — and her child — as far away from him as she can get.
According to that same source, Chris has also tried to break into her home, causing damage in the process to a window and to a doorframe.
And that’s not all.
“Some of the film crew noticed a hole was punched in Kail’s garage door, and she confided in someone on the crew that Chris did it.”
“Nothing was filmed about it, though.”
This is something that fans need to know.
“Kail is really trying to keep this off the show because of how bad she got ripped by fans last time when she was dealing with Javi.”
Horrible how a celebrity mom could get scared into silence about something that is deadly serious because of vicious fans.
First of all, it sounds like Kailyn needs to not only film this — as evidence, if nothing else — but get some sort of protective order.
Apparently Kailyn has “discussed” the idea of it, but hasn’t actually filed.
Too many women wait until it’s too late to get paperwork like that, either because they have a misguided desire to not get the man in trouble or because of a fatalistic fear that it won’t work.
A protective order isn’t a magical forcefield, but it’s a step in the right direction. Our justice system may be terrible at dealing with domestic violence, but violations of a court order might be taken seriously.
These reports are horrifying and we hope that Kailyn and her kids remain safe from harm.
As we reported earlier this week, Scott Disick was hospitalized last month following an emotional breakdown that left friends so concerned about his welfare that they contacted authorities.
Disick was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, but released less than three days later after demonstrating that he did not present a threat to himself or others.
As a result of Disick’s heavy drinking and recent downward spiral, it was widely assumed that his self-destructive lifestyle had finally caught up to the 34-year-old father of three.
Now, however, sources close the Lord are revealing that the situation is more complex than it initially seemed.
Sources close to Scott tell Radar Online that Disick’s hospitalization was tid to his drinking, but in an indirect fashion.
It seems Scott has been struggling with an unspecified health issue for the past ten years, and his frequent drunkenness led him to stop taking his medications at some point over the past few months.
“Scott started using drugs and alcohol as a way to escape from his problems,” one insider tells Radar.
“However, the more he continued to drink, the worse his other problem became.”
The nature of that “other problem” remains a mystery, but apparently it was the basis for Kourtney Kardashian and Kris Jenner’s claim that Scott needed to be hospitalized for his own safety.
Yes, it was Scott’s ex-girlfriend and his former mother in law who requested the psychiatric hold, a reminder that while he’s burned just about every conceivable ridge, the Kardashians are standing by Disick. just as they supported Lamar Odom during his recent troubles.
“Kourtney and Kris had to sign off on Scott getting 5150’d on August 18 because they are the closest thing to a family that Scott has,” says the insider.
Apparently, Kourtney and Kris were quick to recognize Scott’s symptoms, and they contacted the police as a precaution.
Fortunately, when the time came to enter treatement, Disick reportedly went without a fight.
“Kourtney and Scott know that the incident was caused by him not taking medications that he is prescribed,” says the source.
“Scott was compliant with the hospital doctor’s orders and was released.”
It may be a while before we find out the details of Scott’s hospitalization, but sources say Disick’s struggles will be featured on the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Here’s hoping Scott is able to find the help he needs in the meantime.
