Jinger Duggar Due Date: REVEALED!

Jeremy Vuolo has gone ahead and spilled the baby beans.

In updating the biography on his church’s website, the pastor and reality star summarized his journey of faith and family, adding a new paragraph at the bottom about his relationship with Jinger Duggar.

And it’s a rather revealing paragraph, for one reason in particular.

The unexpected addition reads as follows:

Jeremy and his wife Jinger were married in November 2016 and now reside together in Laredo, Texas, on the border of the United States and Mexico, as Jeremy continues to serve as the pastor of Grace Community Church.

They are expecting their first child in July of 2018.

We added the italics and the bold for emphasis because this is the first we’ve heard of just when Jinger is expected to give birth.

We first heard about the child itself back on January 3 when Jinger and Jeremy shared the very simple, very informative and very sweet photo below.

It gets right to the point, doesn’t it?

The couple has only been married for a little over a year, but it only takes one instance of unprotected sex to create a baby.

(Keep that mind, all you kids out there.)

And, as we all know of course, members of the Duggar family waste no time at all when it comes to procreating.

Once that ring is on the woman’s finger, a certain body part (the penis) gets inserted into another certain body part (the vagina) as often as it takes to create life.

In response to their big news, famous loved ones sent their best wishes to Jinger and Jeremy, starting with Derick Dillard.

“Congratulations Jinger and Jeremy on expecting your first child!” wrote the controversial star two weeks ago, adding:

“We are so excited for y’all and know you’ll make excellent parents! Israel and Sam are getting at least 43% more cousins in 2018 and they be excited like WOOO!!!”

Ben Seewald later chimed in as follows:

“3 weddings in less than a year’s time, with @jeremy_vuolo & @jingervuolo, @austinandjoyforsyth, Joe & Kendra! 3 new babies (all boys) born in 2017, Henry, Samuel & Mason! And now…

“3 new babies due in 2018! Boys or girls, what are your guesses?”

Indeed, Joy-Anna is also pregnant, with fans wondering whether she will give birth birth or whether Jinger will become a mother first.

We have no way of knowing, of course.

Joy-Anna has not yet come out with her due date.

Which of these women do YOU think will give birth first?

Leave a comment below with your opinion.

And also with anything else you feel a need to say about this family.

They sure to elicit a range of emotions, don’t they?


Tom Petty’s Cause of Death Has Been Revealed

The very sad and unfortunate news is in:

The official cause of death for music legend Tom Petty has been revealed.

The veteran artist passed away in early October, with his manager making the announcement at the time that shook millions of fans.

“We are devastated to announce the untimely death of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty,” said Tony Dimitriades, adding:

“He died peacefully at 8:40 p.m. local time (0340 GMT Tuesday) surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends.”

Petty was 66 years old.

Now, nearly five months after Petty died, the results of his autopsy have been made public.

In a statement posted on the late singer’s website Friday night, his family said the beloved musician had been using a number of medications, including opioid pain medication Fentanyl.

He ultimately died of “multi-system organ failure” caused by “mixed drug toxicity,” according to the aforementioned autopsy report, released on Friday by the Los Angeles County Coroner.

During an examination on October 3, the medical examiner found fentanyl, oxycodone, temazepam, alprazolam, citalopram, acetylfentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl.

Petty was discovered to be suffering from coronary artery atherosclerosis and emphysema.

“Our family sat together this morning with the Medical Examiner – Coroner’s office and we were informed of their final analysis that Tom Petty passed away due to an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications,” reads the family statement.

It was signed by widow Dana and daughter Adria.

Petty’s loved ones went on to explain that the linchpin to Petty’s demise was a fractured hip. 

The singer insisted on touring for 53 concert dates with this difficult condition, which only grew over time and which caused him to take the medications listed on the examiner’s findings. 

“On the day he died, [Petty] was informed his hip had graduated to a full-on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his overuse of medication,” the family continued in its statement.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office finished an autopsy on the rocker in October, but the official cause of death required further investigation at the time.

Said his family on Friday:

“We knew before the report was shared with us that he was prescribed various pain medications for a multitude of issues including Fentanyl patches and we feel confident that this was, as the coroner found, an unfortunate accident.”

Fentanyl, it should be noted, is the same opiate that killed Prince in April.

The Centers for Disease Control approximates that fentanyl is 80 times as potent as morphine and hundreds of times more potent than heroin.

It is classified as a Schedule II drug by the federal government and its medical uses are normally pain management following surgery or for chronic pain.

Petty’s relatives acknowledged these facts in its statement.

As a family we recognize this report may spark a further discussion on the opioid crisis and we feel that it is a healthy and necessary discussion and we hope in some way this report can save lives.

Many people who overdose begin with a legitimate injury or simply do not understand the potency and deadly nature of these medications.

Concluded this lengthy note, which was shared on Facebook:

On a positive note we now know for certain he went painlessly and beautifully exhausted after doing what he loved the most, for one last time, performing live with his unmatchable rock band for his loyal fans on the biggest tour of his 40 plus year career.

He was extremely proud of that achievement in the days before he passed.

We continue to mourn with you and marvel at Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ incredible positive impact on music and the world.

And we thank you all for your love and support over the last months.

May Tom Petty rest in peace.


Kim Kardashian Surrogate Salary: Revealed! Paltry!

If you’ve been anywhere near social media this week, then you’re no doubt aware that Kim Kardashian has welcomed her third child.

You’re probably also aware that she gave that child a very strange name.

Yes, the moniker Chicago West is dominating all other Kardashian news this week for the simple reason that it’s an unusual name for a baby girl, even by Kimye standards.

Kim and Kanye would probably appreciate it if most critics would hold their damn tongues, but they’re probably not too upset about the fact that Chicago is dominating the entertainment news cycle.

For one thing, Kim and Kanye are of the opinion that everything they do is deserving of the public’s full attention and that’s doubly true when they do something that’s actually newsworthy, such as welcoming a child and naming it after a major American city.

And as a bonus, the name distracts from the weird news coming out today about Kim and Kanye’s surrogate:

As we reported yesterday, Kim’s surrogate was reported to have been very well-paid for her services.

That would make perfect sense, of course, as being a surrogate is a major commitment and Kim and Kanye are very wealthy.

Today, however, Radar Online is reporting that the surrogate (who remains anonymous) was paid much, much less than initially thought.

The site claims that the surrogate received a mere $ 68,850 in compensation “for all discomfort, pain, suffering, and inconveniences, for pregnancy and pre-birth child support expenses and post-birth expenses.”

It’s a sizable sum, to be sure, but a mere fraction of what was expected as payment from one of the wealthiest couples in entertainment.

In addition to the flat fee, Kim and Kanye agreed to cover “obstetrical, nursing, hospital and maternity care, pharmaceutical, pediatrics, or other costs,” as well as covering all “medical expenses, fees, costs and services relating to the pregnancy and the birth of the child.”

Generous, sure, but also a standard part of most surrogate agreements.

The Wests even went so far as to put a clause in the contract ensuring that they would not be held responsible if, for any reason, the surrogate’s husband was forced to miss work during her pregnancy:

“The Intended Parents shall have no responsibility to pay the gestational carrier’s husband’s lost wages under this agreement,” 

We should note that none of this comes directly from the surrogate, as according to the terms of her contract, she’s not permitted to speak to the press.

The surrogate’s parents spoke on her behalf earlier this week and assured the public that all is well. 

“She is doing well,” her mother told Radar Online.

“Everything went well. As a matter of fact, she’s at home resting,” said the surrogate’s father, when asked if there were any complications.

Both parties declined to offer any further information for fear of giving away their daughter’s identity.

An anonymous source says the mother-of-two is happy with the arrangement, as she was never really in it for the money: 

“Neither she or her husband have asked for a nickel more from Kim or Kanye” said the source.

“They just wanted to bless someone’s family with the gift of a child.”

That’s nice and all, but if the family you’re blessing happens to be insanely wealthy, might as well ensure that your own kids are taken care of, right?

Just sayin’ …


Kim Kardashian Baby Name: Revealed! Bizarre!

As you’ve likely heard by now, Kim Kardashian welcomed her third child this week.

The baby girl was delivered via surrogate early Monday morning, and as with their first two children, Kim and Kanye have been very selective about what details they choose to share with the public.

Rumors about the child’s name have been circulating on social media non-stop, but now we finally know what moniker the Wests have chosen–and it’s their strangest one yet.

Yes, Kim and Kanye have always preferred eccentric names for their children, as evidenced by daughter North and son Saint.

But we don’t think anyone could have predicted a handle quite as unusual as–drumroll please–Chicago West.

Yes, the little girl will go through life with the name of Chicago West.

(If she has a middle name, it’s currently being kept private.)

The announcement was made on Kim’s subscription-based app just moments ago.

We suppose it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

Chicago Sign

After all, the couple clearly has a fondness for names that sound like they were suggested by Rand McNally.

According to TMZ, little Chicago will go by the nickname Chi (pronounced “shy”).

Obviously, the decision was made as a tribute to Kanye’s hometown.

Chi was born in Los Angeles, of course, but it seems her parents don’t want her to forget that the world is bigger than ultra-posh Calabasas.

Of course, it’s a lot of pressure being named after such a rough-and-tumble city, and young Chi (great rape name, btw) will have to pub in some serious effort if she wants to live up to her name.

She’ll have to grow up with a healthy reverence for Oprah and Obama, as well as a persistent sense of insecurity about the Cubs.

(Fun fact: Did you know Chi West wasn’t even alive the last time the Cubs won a World Series?!?!)

She’ll need strong opinions about deep dish pizza, ketchup on hot dogs, and the importance of public transportation.

When the time comes to choose a career, she may want consider becoming a corrupt politician.

We kid Chicago because we love it, of course.

And we love the Wests for once again delivering a baby name that no one could’ve predicted.

Mazel tov to one of the world’s most consistently compelling families!


Kim Kardashian Baby Name: Possibly, Sort of Revealed!

According to a recent report, Kim Kardashian has fallen in love with a possible name for her third child.

We mean this more or less literally.

Kardashian supposedly likes the name “Love” for baby number-three.

Or does she?

The reality star shared a mysterious Instagram photo on Wednesday that has caused many followers to assume she and Kanye have selected a name for their new daughter.

What, exactly, is the name?

Well… no one knows for certain.

But many theories are now abounding around the Internet as a result of the image below.

The 37-year old Keeping Up with the Kardashians actress posted a seemingly simple Louis Vuitton monogram on her wildly popular account, prompting many users to think her daughter’s name was inspired by the fashion house.

First, let’s take a look at the photo in question:


Kardashian did not include a caption with the posting.

She could have simply been referencing her affection for the brand, but that possibility hasn’t slowed down massive World Wide Web speculation.

Among the guesses fans have tossed around since this monogram went viral?

“Elle V West,” “LV West” and “Louis West.”

Do these options sound sort of absurd for a child’s name? Yes.

But Kim and Kanye named their first kid North and their second kid Saint. So, really, nothing is off the table at this point.

It’s also worth noting that West has included many Louis Vuitton references in his music, including in tracks such as“Stronger,” “Runaway Love,” “Gold Digger,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” “The Glory” and “Pinocchio Story.”

He is sometimes called Louis Vuitton Don for a reason.

The couple known as Kimye welcomed a girl into the world via surrogate on Monday.

Multiple reports have confirmed that Kardashian was in the room for the birth, which she did not go through with herself due to a serious medical condition.

Wrote the former sex tape star as confirmation of the blessed event:

“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl.”

She added:

“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care.”

kim statement

Now that Kim is a mother of three, some are wondering just how long she’ll continue on with her reality television career.

Others, conversely, figure this new arrival simply gives her ample fodder for many more years of E! episodes.

In the end, of course, no one knows for sure.

Kardashian herself may not even know… or care very much at the moment.

She now has three kids at home under the age of five and may very well have more important things on her mind, such as sleep and sanity.

Until she reveals the name herself, we’ll take all rumors with a grain of salt the size of Kim’s boobs and we’ll simply say the following:

Congrats, Kim and Kanye!!!!!!


Dolores O’Riordan: Cause of Death Revealed?

The music world was stunned yesterday by news that Cranberries lead singer, Dolores O’Riordan, had passed away unexpectedly at the age of 46.

The death was reportedly sudden and unexpected, leaving fans confused as to what might have befallen the seemingly healthy rock icon.

Earlier today, police issued a statement declaring that there was “nothing suspicious” about O’Riordan’s passing.

The news prompted widespread speculation as to other possible causes.

Not surprisingly, the leading theory seems to be that O’Riordan either took her own life or died accidentally in connection with her history substance abuse.

Both possibilities have been erroneously reported by various media outlets, but currently, there is not enough information to confirm either theory.

Seemingly suggesting that O’Riordan may have overdosed on sleeping pills, The National Enquirer reprinted this quote from a 2014 interview:

“I cannot have sleeping pills around, because if I have a few drinks, I’ll take them,” O’Riordan remarked.

“On tour, it was just so easy to say: ‘I can’t sleep, I’ve had a couple of drinks, maybe I’ll take one.’ Then you take another. Then you don’t wake up. That can happen. I am careful now.”

Irish tabloid The Mirror hinted that O’Riordan’s history of heavy alcohol consumption may have factored into her death, digging up this comment from an interview the singer gave several years ago:

“I am pretty good but sometimes I hit the bottle,” she said.

“Everything is way worse the next morning. I chain smoke when I drink. I have a bad day when I have bad memories and I can’t control them and I hit the bottle. I kind of binge drink. That is kind of my biggest flaw at the moment.”

Both outlets pointed out that O’Riordan’s final years were marred by erratic behavior and domestic unrest.

In 2014, the singer was arrested for assaulting a police officer and a flight attendant on a flight from Dublin to New York.

That same year, her twenty-year marriage ended on contentious terms.

None of this is to say that O’Riordan necessarily turned to drugs in her final years or intentionally ended her own life.

Police say it may be weeks before they’re able to release a cause of death, as they’re currently waiting on results from an intensive toxicology screening.

What matters most to fans, of course, is not the manner in which O’Riordan died, but the cherished body of work she left behind.

Our thoughts go out to her family during this difficult time.


Mama June Shannon: Secret Boyfriend’s Identity Revealed!

You know how the world recently learned that June Shannon has a secret boyfriend who taught her how to love again?

Mama June gushes about him and the two kiss on the From Not to Hot season 2 trailer, but his actual identity has been kept pretty hush-hush.

But now we know his name … and a lot more about him.

While it’s great that June’s new size 4 figure is helping her find happiness, for a lot of viewers, the news that June Shannon was dating again brought up … mixed feelings.

After all, June was infamously seen cozying up to Mark McDaniel … a convicted sex offender whom June’s own daughter, Anna Cardwell, accuses of molesting her.

The only good reason anyone can think of for a mother to spend time with the man who molested her then-8-year-old daughter while her then-three-year-old daughter (Lauryn) was also on the bed is if she had been planning to murder him.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled over that scandal. It was years before the final episodes were aired and before June Shannon made her (real) reality television comeback with From Not to Hot.

Thankfully, Mama June does not appear to be repeating such an unimaginable mistake.

RadarOnline reports that Mama June’s new boyfriend is Geno Doak, a 42-year-old carpenter. 

June had previously stated, without naming her beau, that the two had met through mutual friends.

Apparently, that also involved her hiring him to fix up her home in Hampton, Georgia.

Geno Doak is also a single parent, as he has one son and two daughters.

What’s more — these two have dated before. Way back in 2015, in fact.

As we previously reported, Mama June hasn’t been able to resist gushing about her then-mystery boyfriend.

“He is very, very awesome,” she told E!

Well, she definitely sounds enthusiastic about the guy.

“He actually restored my faith and the girls’ faith in men.”

That’s pretty profound. Before you question why a girl as young as Alana might need her faith in men restored, remember that she has eyes and has also probably noticed her mother’s relationships over the years.

June also talks about what makes her love Geno.

“It’s the little things…he is above and beyond anything that I could ever expect.”

She talks about how this happy romance got started.

“We honestly were just wanting to be friends and things just worked out.”

A lot of relationships begin that way.

RadarOnline confirms that Geno Doak will appear on the second season of From Not to Hot, by the way.

We’d figured as much.

But we already knew that June’s ex, Sugar Bear, and his new wife would be appearing on the new season, too.

And apparently June does not give one flying flip what he thinks about her new relationship.

“As long as I’m happy and the girls are happy at the end of the day, that’s all that matters to me.”

It sounds like she has her priorities in order.



Kylie Jenner: REAL Reason She’s in Hiding Revealed?!

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.


Olivia Nova: Porn Star’s Cause of Death Revealed as Family Launches Fundraiser

On Tuesday, the world of adult film was shaken by news that up-and-coming performer Olivia Nova had passed away at the age of 20.

Nova’s body was discovered by Las Vegas police over the weekend, but news of her death did not go public until two days later, when authorities could be certain that her family had been notified.

Sadly, Nova’s is the latest in a succession of adult film actresses to pass away prematurely in recent months.

In December, well-known star August Ames took her own life after being bullied online for her allegedly homophobic views.

In the weeks prior to Ames’ death, performers Shyla Styles and Yurizan Beltran passed away due to 

Given her youth and the recent rash of deaths it’s been widely assumed that Nova’s death was related to addiction or mental illness.

Now, several sources are reporting that there was no sign of foul play, and Nova’s death does not appear to be the result of natural causes.

Not surprisingly, fans have concluded that Nova (real name Lexi Rose Forte) either took her own life or accidentally overdosed.

However, it may be quite some time toxicology results can begin to offer a more complete picture of the actress and model’s final hours.

“Test results usually take about 6-8 weeks,” an investigator involved with the case tells Radar Online.

Nova had reportedly struggled with depression throughout her life, a condition that was exacerbated in recent months by a series of personal setbacks.

In early 2017, Nova revealed on Twitter that her boyfriend had fatally overdosed on heroin (she tweeted that he’d “killed himself,” leading some fans to the conclusion that she believes he intentionally took his own life).

“Rest In Peace love…. it seems like we were cuddling in bed all day with the puppy eating pizza and watching movies yesterday. Im not ready to say goodbye to you yet….” she captioned the above photo.

The death came not long after a car crash that left Nova with serious facial injuries that left the future of her modeling career in question.

It could be months before police have any definitive answers with regard to what substances were in Nova’s body at the time of her death and what may have motivated her to ingest them.

In the meantime, her family is asking for the support of Olivia’s many fans, as they cope with the financial burden of planning a funeral and getting her affairs in order.

Olivia’s mother, Leslie Forte, has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the cost of planning a funeral and traveling from Minnesota to Las Vegas to retrieve Olivia’s beloved dog and gather her belongings.

“We are asking that friends and loved ones of Lexi rally together to support her family during this time of need, whether it be by prayer, good vibes or a monetary donation,” the page reads.

“Leslie must now travel to Las Vegas to sort through and pack Lexi’s belongings, retrieve Lexi’s beloved dog, Rocko, and finally, bring Lexi back home to Minnesota.”

The family hopes to raise $ 8,000 to cover expenses.

Olivia had more than 20,000 Twitter followers, whom they hope will show their support for the beloved performer one final time.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.


Jill Duggar: Son’s Secret Medical Crisis Revealed!

Jill Duggar has been a reality TV star since childhood.

As such, she’s accustomed to sharing just about everything with her family’s massive fan base.

But there are some things that even Jill would prefer to keep private.

When Jill welcomed her second child back in July of 2017, she waited several weeks before posting a photo.

Now, fans believe they know why.

Jill’s husband, Derick Dillard, posted the above photo on his Instagram page this week as part of a montage celebrating his mother’s birthday.

Fans were shocked by the never-before-seen image of baby Samuel hooked up to wires with tubes coming out of his nose.

Some of Derick’s followers were deeply concerned by what they saw.

Others insisted that while they’re certainly unsettling, such scenes are not uncommon.

“That is a tube to suction fluid out of the lungs,” commented one fan.

“When babies are born by C-section the fluid does not get pushed out by contractions. It is normal to have to get this out, not a complication. Happened with both my C-section babies.”

Others continue to suspect that Samuel experienced serious health problems from birth and that the Duggars did their best to downplay the severity of the situation.

“Omg poor Samuel, feeding tube and oxygen. Don’t think he was as healthy at birth as you said originally,” one of Derick’s followers wrote.

At the time of Samuel’s birth, the Duggars did reveal that he was born via C-section following a difficult and complicated labor.

“After 40 hours of labor, he was delivered via C-section at the hospital,” the family revealed in a statement released just after the birth.

“Thank you for your continued prayers and support!”

“His birth didn’t go as expected,” Jill later stated in an interview with People magazine.

In all likelihood, fans will never know exactly how serious Samuel’s health problems were at the time of his birth.

Derick Dillard has been fired by TLC as a result of some controversial public statements, and it appears as though his family will be leaving the spotlight along with him.

So going forward, the only source of information about the Dillard family will be the Dillards themselves.

Watch Counting On online to relive how Jill and Derick got to where they are today.
