Joe Manchin isn’t worried about George Clooney getting his hands around the March for Our Lives protest, ‘cause he says nothing can taint this movement … not even Hollywood. We got the West Virginia senator Sunday in D.C. and asked if he thought…
Recently, Kim Kardashian slammed Lamar Odom on Twitter, going right for the jugular after he shared some unkind words about Khloe.
Kim’s not going to let anyone trash-talk her sister, least of all her sister’s ex. And, according to this report, she’ll go as far as it takes to keep Lamar’s trap shut — even resorting to threats to spill his secrets.
This is Lamar Odom, folks. We’re sure that Kim has plenty of ammunition.
Recently, Lamar Odom threw some shade in the direction of his ex, Khloe Kardashian.
Like all good shade, the insults weren’t direct. In fact, it started with compliments and praise.
“I’m happy for her.”
Referring, of course, to Khloe’s pregnancy with Tristan Thompson’s baby.
“She took care of me. She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”
He mentions the matching tattoos that he and Khloe got when they tied the knot.
“I got my shawty’s name still on me, her initials still on me. But for no reason.”
By which he of course means that there’s no particular reason for which he hasn’t yet gotten around to getting his tattoo removed.
Again, he just hasn’t gotten around to it. He’s not still clinging to hope or whatever.
“I understand when it’s over, it’s over.”
And this is when he gets nasty.
“When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that.”
And Kim Kardashian fired back on Twitter:
“Or second or third brothel,” referring to how Lamar Odom famously had a scary health crisis in a brothel.
RadarOnline reports that Kim Kardashian “is willing to do whatever it takes to keep him away from her sister.”
And apparently, she’s willing to spill Lamar’s secrets if necessary.
“Kim is all about protecting her family — and, of course, protecting her family’s image.”
That’s no surprise. The Kardashian brand is tied to their family’s image.
And just look at what Kim did to Taylor Swift when she felt like Taylor was a threat to Kanye’s image.
“After everything they did for Lamar, she won’t have him trying to make Khloe look bad, particularly when she has moved on with her life.”
RadarOnline‘s sources also claim that Kim has reached out to Lamar, privately, to caution him against speaking out against Khloe any further.
“Kim doesn’t want him anywhere near her family.”
It sounds like she feels like Lamar is toxic.
“She has made it clear that she has a ton of dirt on Lamar, and wouldn’t hesitate to spill all if it comes to that.”
Now, we don’t know that Kim is actually prepared to blackmail Lamar into being nice to his ex.
It is, however, understandable that she’s feeling so protective of Khloe. And, quite frankly, Lamar has zero room to talk.
There’s nothing wrong with hiring sex workers, of course. But there is something wrong with suggesting that Khloe is promiscuous and chases after one type of man when his own predilections are so well-known.
What other secrets does Kim have to spill, we wonder?
If Lamar does the smart thing, we may never find out.
Tamar Braxton has had a… how should we put this? …. interesting week.
To say the very, very, very least.
The singer, who announced in late October that her marriage to Vince Herbert is over, was forced to respond this week to a pair of incidents involving her estranged ex-lover.
First, as reported by TMZ, Herbert was taken into police custody on Christmas Day and charged with spousal abuse.
After spending some time in jail, Herbert was released on $ 20,000 bail.
With many folks around the Internet assuming her soon-to-be-ex assaulted her in some way, Braxton cited a restraining order she has against Herbert and told TMZ the following:
“Co-parenting while going through a divorce is not an easy task.
“While celebrating the Christmas holiday as a family, after a few drinks and some jealousy, things got a bit out of hand, which is common for most families during the holidays.
“In the midst of everything our family is going through things got heated and a bit exaggerated.”
What may have prompted this argument between the former spouses?
The accusation by another woman that Herbert got her pregnant!
“There was no physical interaction between Vince and I on Christmas,” Braxton makes clear in her statement to TMZ, adding:
“While I do not appreciate his lack of respect for our family and him allegedly impregnating another woman, I cannot paint him as a vicious abuser that Vince is not.”
Indeed, Braxton went off on a pretty awesome Instagram rant against this other woman and Herbert just a few days ago, as you can see above.
She’s refusing to her the unprotected sex she had with Vince ruin her day, week or future forecast.
“Smh happy new year folks!! Ladies and gentlemen know that 2018 is a FRESH start and if i can leave this liar u can leave yours too,” Braxton wrote to her followers.
Braxton and Herbert were married for nine years.
They share a four-year old son named Logan.
You may recognize the stars from their VH1 reality show, Tamar and Vince; and/or Braxton from her stint as a co-host on The Real.
Insiders previously said that she fell into some kind of depression after she was fired from that talk show, which contributed to the demise of her marriage.
It maybe didn’t help that Herbert was sleeping around, although we can’t say for certain just when he allegedly knocked this other woman up.
“I’m deeply hurt and saddened that this will be how we remember Christmas 2017,” Braxton concluded to TMZ.
“But, my motto is and maintains to be ‘Bluebird of Happiness’ and nobody will stop my joy and blessings going into the New Year! God Bless!”
We’ve heard that one of the priorities that producers had for this past season was to try to reunite Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge.
That goal was apparently why they brought back Lydia McLaughlin. And, mission more or less accomplished, they’ve now fired Lydia McLaughlin. Make of that what you will.
But that doesn’t mean that Tamra is headed for a drama-free life. Because it looks like Gretchen Rossi is going to make an epic return to The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Tamra Judge and Gretchen Rossi aren’t exactly what you’d call friends.
You might think that, with Gretchen no longer on The Real Housewives of Orange County, the ongoing dislike between the two of them might have cooled off during the past season.
Out of sight, out of mind, you know?
Instead, things actually reached a boiling point — no, they more or less exploded — between Gretchen and Tamra.
See, back in August, Sidney Barney slammed Tamra Judge as a bad mother, accusing neglect and emotional abuse.
Sidney, not an adult, alleged that her estranged mother continued to use her as a storyline despite her repeated requests to not be mentioned, that Tamra misrepresented her relationship with Sidney to gain sympathy from followers, and that Tamra basically just sucks.
Sidney said that a little more eloquently, but you get the idea.
How did Gretchen respond to Sidney’s post?
With sympathy and support. Gretchen wrote in a publicly visible reply to Sidney’s post:
“You have no idea how your brave words are helping so many who have been wronged by your mother’s manipulation and lies as well … “
We honestly doubt that this was Sidney’s intention, but Gretchen was clearly making this about her.
“So thank you for being brave enough to speak the truth.”
“I am so sorry your mother and your family is going through any of this, especially publicly, but continue to stay strong.”
“Your morals and strength are commendable and inspiring.”
That is classic the enemy of my enemy is my friend, right there.
Well, it looks like Tamra’s life is about to get a whole lot more stressful.
RadarOnline reports that Gretchen Rossi is being courted to return to The Real Housewives of Orange County.
For a price.
“Gretchen is willing to return, but producers know she will only sign if they offer the kind of money she can’t refuse.”
According to their source, Gretchen wants the kind of salary that Vicki Gunvalson is making.
Reportedly, Vicki is pulling in about $ 750,000 a year. But apparently producers think that Gretchen might be worth it.
“Producers for RHOC know that they need someone who is going to bring the drama, and Gretchen will certainly do just that.”
She’ll certainly do that.
After Vicki and Tamra ever-so-slightly mended fences in Iceland, producers will want new, fresh drama that doesn’t threaten to derail the entire series.
They’ll also need it to be a source of reliable drama, too.
“Gretchen will never, ever make up with Tamra.”
That sounds much better than the random fights that the now-fired Peggy Sulahian used to engage in for no reason other than the fact that cameras were rolling.
“The two hate each other so much and it does not matter to Gretchen whether or not Vicki let it go because she will not.”
Gretchen and Vicki, of course, are still friends. But it sounds like Gretchen won’t hold back.
You know that Vine (who else is excited about Vine 2?!) where the kid does his impression of Real Housewives by stuffing his shirt hilariously and then saying “I won’t hesitate, bitch” while pointing a toy gun?
That, it sounds like, is what we can look forward to from the next season of The Real Housewvies of Orange County.
Assuming that producers cough up the requisite dough, that is.
With Meghan King Edmonds remaining on the show because she’s pregnant and Gretchen a likely castmate, we’re reportedly still looking at at least three new castmates being added to the roster for next season.
It’ll be interesting to see what sort of dynamic the producers cook up.
Farrah Abraham has been so brave lately, right?
It must take a lot of strength to be able to stand up for yourself when hate crimes are being committed against you left and right.
In case you missed it, our favorite Teen Mom train wreck spent much of last week ranting and raving about MTV and its parent company, Viacom, for what she repeatedly referred to as “hate crimes.”
They fired her from Teen Mom OG for masturbating for the internet, and it seemed to really hurt her feelings.
She accused them of “women hating, sex shaming, hate crimes, selfish, Weinstein company power trip behaviors against a professional hard working, honest mother.”
A few days later, she revealed in a bizarre video rant that she actually wasn’t fired, but that she was still really, really mad at Teen Mom producers.
She wasn’t making much sense — less than she usually does, even — but the gist of it seemed to be that she misunderstood the conversation and that she was simply warned that she could be fired if she continued with the porn.
Still, she insisted that she was the victim of hate crimes, and her future with Teen Mom is uncertain.
It’s a lot to happen in just one week, right?
But Farrah’s schedule was even busier than that, because her mother, Debra Danielsen, also got married on Sunday!
Deb got hitched to creepy old Dr. David at a ceremony in an Omaha aquarium, and Farrah was named the Honorary Maid of Honor.
It was all very dramatic, because as we saw on the last season of Teen Mom OG, Farrah and David really do not get along at all, and her relationship with Deb hasn’t been all that great either.
For the longest time, Farrah has said that she wouldn’t attend the wedding, and up until the last minute, it looked like she was staying true to her word.
But then, right before the ceremony began, Farrah snuck in to stand next to Deb on her special day — wearing a black suit, no less.
So what caused the change of heart?
As Farrah explained in an interview with The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, “I think I decided to come when I stopped working with the production company who was sabotaging this whole wedding.”
“I’m here on my own terms and I’m happy that they’re not here filming and it’s not about them. I’m here being the nice person that I am and that’s all that matters.”
It sounds like her stance now is that MTV somehow sabotaged her relationship with her mother?
It doesn’t make a lot of sense, since Farrah and Deb have had issues for years and years and years — even going back to the 16 and Pregnant days.
But she’s really doing her best to pin everything on the network, since she had a similar explanation in a statement she made to In Touch.
In that statement, she said that “I don’t think I changed my mind about coming” to the wedding, instead “I just think this is how it should have been done.”
“I don’t need to be pressured by a production company to do things their way or be told how Farrah is. I know that I’m a great daughter.”
“I’m a great person,” she continued. “I’m loving, I’m caring, and I’m awesome. I was just tired of being portrayed a certain way on Teen Mom and how I was filmed, and that’s why I’m not working with the production I was filming Teen Mom with anymore.”
She clarified that she’s still “working with Viacom,” that “I didn’t breach my contract and hate crimes and things against me that the other Teen Moms don’t have to deal with, which it’s obvious is a hate crime.”
“I am over that time in my life and I only look forward to working with a professional company to portray real reality TV and watch my real story, instead of trying to sabotage my mom’s wedding and our relationship.”
“I didn’t allow that,” she concluded, “and I’m happy I came here tonight.”
Debra seemed happy too — she told The Ashley that “It was the best thing,” having Farrah attend the wedding.
“It was a gift from God,” she said. “It meant everything to me. I love my children. We are making progress and we’re happy.”
OK, so now it sounds like Farrah is still doing Teen Mom, she just got a different crew and established some new rules for how she’s portrayed on the show? Maybe?
Either that or she’s doing a different reality show altogether, but either way, we’re going to keep seeing this girl live her crazy life on television.

If you’re a Teen Mom 2 fan, then you’re probably aware that Jenelle Evans got married over the weekend.
You might also be aware that Jenelle called off the wedding less than 24 hours before she was scheduled to walk down the aisle.
Eventually, she changed her mind, she and David exchanged vows, and we would say that everything worked out in the end, but this is the world of Jenelle Evans we’re talking about – a place where there is no happily ever after.
Instead of enjoying her honeymoon phase, Jenelle took to Twitter (where she’s already changed her name to Jenelle Eason) to behave in a very presidential fashion.
By which we mean she a launched on non-stop verbal assault against her perceived enemies.
As usual, Jenelle is going on about her custody battle with Nathan Griffith in a way that probably will only hurt her in court.
Nothing new there, of course.
What’s interesting this time is that Jenelle’s enemies list has expanded to include some of the same media outlets that she often feeds stories too.
Evans claims that reporters representing OK! magazine and Radar Online were camped out in the woods near her house in the hours leading up to her nuptials.
She claims they were the ones who broke the story about her pre-wedding fight with David (though in fairness, that blowout was so loud that anyone of her neighbors could’ve recorded it with a smartphone).
And now, she’s responding the same way she responds to everything single thing that happens to her: with seething rage!
“Don’t write a damn thing about me anymore,” Jenelle tweeted today.
“You send a reporter to my house and secretly recorded me, then ask for exclusive?!”
Jenelle went on to get downright Trump-ian, claiming that OK! and Radar totally wanted to strike a deal with her, but she’s much too cool for all that.
“Trying to offer us tons of money, you can keep every penny,” she tweeted.
Interestingly, she didn’t deny her fight with David, but chalked the screaming match up to pre-wedding jitters:
“God forbid we both had anxiety the day before our wedding. Find something else to bitch about. My night was great, sorry you weren’t there,” Evans tweeted.
Did she stop there? Ha! That’s a good one!
“No but for real whoever hid in the woods props to you, hope you didn’t get bit by spiders, tics, or a cottonmouth. #Idiots.” Jenelle added.
“I have my own photographer that takes 1 million times better pics then some creepy stalker pics.”
We expect her to announce her 2020 presidential candidacy any day now.

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have separated, because love isn’t real and we all eventually succumb to entropy.
But it looks like working in the same field doesn’t always help your marriage, because part of what may have torn apart this power couple was their very competitive natures.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris had a beautiful relationship.
We say had because they’ve separated, and we don’t mean to sound too pessimistic … but they don’t seem like a couple that’s going to bounce back after realizing that they can’t live without each other.
Sure, Anna Faris has reportedly been crying every day since the two of them split, but it’s normal to grieve a relationship.
And crying is a normal part of grief.
Fans of the couple have been grieving, too — this news came as such a shock.
From what we understand, it sounds like the biggest factor behind Chris Pratt and Anna Faris’ split was disagreements about how to live their lives, pretty much.
Anna Faris wants to stay based in L.A. and wants the family to spend a lot of time with each other.
She reportedly also wants to have more children.
Chris Pratt, on the other hand, is zipping around all over the world to film on different locations.
So, yeah, he’s pretty busy these days.
And he certainly can’t responsibly commit to having more children when he can’t always be there for his family.
Part of that story never quite struck us as the whole story.
Like … who calls it quits, guaranteeing that the family will spend no time together, when their desire is to spend more time together.
That’s like refusing to eat your cake because it’s not as big of a slice as you’d wanted.
Cake is cake.
It looks like there’s more.
Us Weekly reports that their source tells them that Chris Pratt’s movie star status drove a wedge between him and Anna Faris.
Because apparently the two are pretty competitive.
“Chris became this huge movie star and Anna wasn’t getting any big jobs.”
Most people would celebrate that … but you can see how a sudden change might leave her feeling like part of his old life.
“She was the more famous and sexy one at the start of their relationship and then things took a turn.”
Imagine if Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima stay together, but in a few years Younes becomes this huge movie star who’s famous and beloved by fans for different blockbuster films.
That might … change their dynamic.
You’d think that Anna Faris would just be happy for Chris Pratt’s sensational success.
Right now he’s a guy that Hollywood wants for every role (whether he’s great for it like in Guardians Of The Galaxy or an ill fit like in Passengers).
Most people would be beyond thrilled that their spouse has rocketed up to the top.
(Not to mention, you know, brings home those kinds of paychecks)
But their competitiveness has always been there, the insider claims:
“When they’re in a big group, they each want to be the one telling the funniest joke.”
Apparently, Chris Pratt going from a guy who stars on one NBC comedy to a Hollywood A-Lister practically overnight didn’t sit well with Anna.
“It definitely caused tension in their marriage.”
That is just … so sad.
As news broke of their separation, a lot of people have been quick to share their own theories behind the split.
And by theories, we really just mean theory — singular.
Because, while Chris Pratt was handsome and lovable before he became a movie star …
(Remember how great he was, even early on, on Parks and Recreation? Like, his character was awful for that first season or so, but he himself was great)
… He wasn’t, like, mind-blowingly hot until he was getting those big Marvel Movie Star bucks.
People joked that they’d never allow their significant other to get that hot, out of fears that they’d leave them.
To be honest, though, Chris Pratt doesn’t really strike us as the “gee I’m hot and now I can bang anyone I want!” type.
There are plenty of those, and that’s fine — some people get rich and famous and hot pretty much entirely so that they can go wild with as many beautiful partners as possible.
(Their dream is to live Scott Disick’s current lifestyle, but to be happy while they’re doing it instead of being filled with self-loathing)
Chris Pratt doesn’t fit that profile, at all.
Rumors aside, it’s hard to picture him cheating.
So of all of the factors that pulled them apart — their schedules, different ideas about how many kids they wanted to have, competition — we don’t think that Chris’ hotness was, directly, a factor.
Sometimes, marriages end.
Actually … all marriages end. In death or divorce.
That’s how the world works, folks.

Last week, we learned that Teen Mom 3 star Briana DeJesus will be joining the cast of Teen Mom 2.
The move stunned both the show’s fans and its existing cast members, as for all of the criticism it’s received, few have ever complained that TM2 is lacking in the drama department.
The other stars are rumored to be angry about DeJesus being hired, as they feel her presence will distract from their storylines and cut into their camera time.
But there’s one former MTV star who’s wishing DeJesus all the best and expressing gratitude that she wasn’t chosen for the job.
Like DeJesus, Alex Sekella starred on the first and only season of Teen Mom 3.
Unlike her co-stars, however, Sekella says she was glad when the show was canceled.
Fans have apparently been asking Sekella how she feels about the DeJesus situation on social media.
She responded today with a lengthy Facebook post describing her feelings on the move, her life these days, and her thoughts about being a star of the Teen Mom franchise:
“After finishing Teen Mom 3 and being told they weren’t continuing I said there and then that I’m done with filming, I’m wiping my hands clean of this and moving forward,” Sekella wrote.
“So I’m sure when the discussion about pulling cast members from Teen Mom 3 for Teen Mom 2 my name was probably not even mentioned because they knew that I did not want it.”
It’s a refreshingly honest take from someone who clearly didn’t enjoy the reality TV spotlight.
Sekella goes on to say that the life she enjoys today wouldn’t be possible if she were still on television:
“Honestly though that was the best decision I could of made. I’ve been able to start a normal life and start a REAL career that will last a very long time and benefit my children,” she told fans.
“I’ve also been able to find a real relationship that won’t be picked and prodded at by the world to see.”
“I have had a pretty drama free life since the end of Teen Mom 3 and I don’t believe that any of that would’ve happened if I had not removed myself.
Sekella describes her life as “drama-free” and for evidence that she’s telling the truth, you don’t need to look any further than the comments section on her Facebook post.
After Alex split from her baby’s father, Matt McCann, he married LeKota McCann and had a together, they had a son named Matty.
Matt and LeKota later divorced, and far from being rivals, she and Alex are clearly close friends thse days:
“Can I personally tell you I’m thankful you chose that because not only have you protected you and Bellie but you’re also protecting Matty and I,” LeKota commented.
“I’m very thankful for that and honestly, you’re so much classier than reality TV.”
Obviously, this sort of maturity and grace have no place on an MTV reality series!
Watch Teen Mom 2 online to remind yourself of the sort of drama-fueled lives the network seeks out.
