Audrey Roloff Explains Why Her “Mom Guilt” Almost Ruined Christmas

Audrey Roloff still has a lot to learn as a new mother.

Heck, every single woman on the planet who recently gave birth has a lot to learn as a new mother.

This whole parenting thing is not easy.

The Little People, Big World star is well aware of this fact, of course, having opened up last fall about the challenges she faced early on breastfeeding.

Roloff even admitted to showing signs of postpartum depression.

But the reality star and husband Jeremy have seemingly come a long way over the past couple months, sharing endless photos of daughter Ember Jean and gushing over her on Instagram.

In her latest blog, however, Audrey opens up yet again about a parenting obstacle.

And how it nearly ruined her very first Christmas with Ember.

“I started the morning off with a champion mom moment,” Audrey writes sarcastically, elaborating as follows:

“I cut Ember’s nail to short and it bleed for a solid hour… I laid in bed with her all morning, refusing to get up and make us Christmas brunch, and wallowing in mom guilt.

“Ember cried for all of 10 seconds, but of course it left my eyes watery and my heart throbbing for the next few hours.

“Lord, why did you have to make babies nails grow so fast?!”

LOL. That’s sort of funny.

And something to which millions of parents can relate.

But it was clearly no laughing matter for Roloff at the time.

“It wasn’t how I wanted Christmas morning to start off,” she continues, explaining:

“I wanted it to be a perfect, cuddly, picturesque, breakfast-in-bed kinda morning. But it wasn’t.

“Does anyone else set too strict or too high of expectations for holidays, birthdays and anniversaries?! I can’t be the only one… but I am learning to let go of this, and not let one wrong turn have such a rock skipping effect.

“Come on Auj, buck up and move on.

“Maybe I’m just a wee more emotional because it was her first Christmas and maybe mom guilt really does make you a little crazy.”

It’s true, right?

But here’s the thing: mom guilt will never really go away.

Right now, it comes out when you cut your loved one’s nails too closely.

In a few years, it will come out when you forget to pack her lunch for first grade or something.

This is just part of being a parent and it’s something all mothers and fathers must deal with. It’s important to remember, however, that such small mistakes really have no impact on one’s son or daughter.

Just provide a loving home and a healthy environment for your children to live in… and do your best on a daily basis with everything else.

That’s all one can realistically ask of oneself.

Thankfully, it’s pretty clear Audrey got over her mistake and the family had an epic time on December 25.

“Ember’s first Christmas brought out the child in us both again,” she concluded on her blog, writing:

“I cannot wait to celebrate the holidays with Ember and our future children in the years to come, it makes everything so much more fun!”

Whoa! Future children?!?

Forget those Jacob Roloff baby rumors. Is Audrey pregnant again?

We can’t imagine so. She just gave birth four months ago!

But will she do so again and is she excited about the possibility? Yes.

And that’s great to hear. We’re glad excessive nail cutting didn’t crush Audrey’s dream of adding to her family someday.


Kailyn Lowry: My Mom is a Drunk Who Ruined My Life!

Teen Mom 2's Kailyn Lowry is opening up about her tough childhood – and its impact on her to this day – on WEtv's Marriage Boot Camp.

Those who follow Kail know her story … but not like this.

In the sneak peek at Friday’s episode below, the 25-year-old mother of three discusses her tumultuous relationship with her mother.

According to Kail, her mom suffers from severe alcoholism, which indirectly drove Lowry down the path she took so young in her life.

In other words, becoming 16 & Pregnant.

The MTV star gave birth to her first child with her ex-boyfriend, Jo Rivera, son Isaac Elliott, when she was only 17 years old.

While this obviously launched her career as a reality TV star and social media influencer, it's been a difficult journey from the beginning.

She also shares son Lincoln Marshall, 3, with Javi Marroquin, to whom she was married for several years. And then there's #BabyLo.

For a long time, no one knew who the father of her third baby was; Chris Lopez and Kailyn had a brief romance at best earlier this year.

Lux Russell was recently born (Kail may change Lux's name again, but that's a story for another time), leaving her with three little kids.

Three little kids and a LOT of drama.

To hear her tell it, tracing this back to her childhood is not a stretch. “I was like, maybe 6 [years old] and the cops came for my mom,” she says.

“They just took her away. I didn’t understand. I didn’t know why she was being taken from me. Now I know … addiction can do horrible things.”

Lowry says she “wants to be a better parent” than her mother was, adding “I want to be everything that she was never to me.”

“I don’t like to talk about my mom,” she admits, reiterating, “I definitely think her not being there influenced me to have a child young.”

If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you know Kail is not the best at confrontations, but she hasn't shied away from discussing this either.

“She would get drunk and drive with me and stuff, but she didn’t do it because she wanted to hurt me," she said on a past TM2 reunion.

"She did it because she's sick."

“But it’s my mom,” she added. “No matter how many times I say I’m not going to talk to her, I will always go back and give her a chance.”

Jennifer Garner: Ben Affleck Basically Ruined My Life!

Sort of good news, Ben Affleck:

Those horrible Justice League reviews might not sound so bad anymore.

Not after Jennifer Garner just gave you some pretty terrible reviews as a human being.

Speaking to an Australian news outlet this week, Garner said she has no interest in dating anyone at the moment.

Yes, she’s been separated from Affleck for about two-and-a-half years.

But, no, this doesn’t mean she’s ready to go back on the market.

Telling News.com.au that she hasn’t been on a single date since splitting from her sort of shady husband, Garner said it isn’t for a lack of others trying to force her out.

“People want to set me up and I am just like, ‘No thank you!’” she says.

The 45-year old star has three kids with Affleck: Violet, 12, Seraphina, 8 and Samuel, 5.

She has taken the high road at every opportunity when it comes to her marriage, despite accusations over the years of Affleck cheating on her and partying way too much for a father of three.

In this interview, however, Garner finally takes an understandable shot at the latest actor to portray Batman.

“I would not have chosen this life for myself or for my kids,” she says, adding:

“I would not choose to be single or be in this position. It’s something that we are working through.”

Affleck has been in and out of rehab for several months now.

No one can blame the guy if he really has an addiction to alcohol – but he’s also been moving on pretty strongly with new girlfriend Lindsay Shookus.

There’s been talk they may move in together and also talk that he started sleeping with her while he and Garner were still trying to mend their marriage.

After two years of separation, Garner and Affleck filed for divorce this April.

However, they have stayed close and remained committed to co-parenting as much as possible.

“She wants Ben to be the best dad possible to their kids,” a source tells People in the publication’s new issue.

Garner really has handled this public break-up as maturely and as reasonably as one conceivably could.

Affleck, for his part, finds himself embroiled in the ongoing Hollywood sexual harassment scandal; considering he knew Harvey Weinstein well and also groped an actress on an episode of MTV’s TRL in 2004.

The actress was former One Tree Hill star Hilarie Burton.

“I don’t remember it but I absolutely apologize for it,” Affleck said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert about the incident, adding:

“I certainly don’t think she’s lying or making it up. It’s just the kind of thing we have to – as men, I think, as we become more aware of this – be really, really mindful of our behavior and hold ourselves accountable.

“And say, ‘If I was ever part of the problem, I want to change and be part of the solution.”


Miranda Lambert: Blake Shelton Ruined My Life!

Sometimes, exes get along. Not so for Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. Even two years later.

That might make great fodder for Country music, but their conflict and hurt feelings can’t be great for them, personally — even though they’re both moving on with their lives, careers, and new partners.

But Miranda Lambert has reportedly given a no-holds barred interview about exactly what she thinks of Blake and how he ended their marriage, and we have a little preview of that.

Before Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani started dating, before they became one of the most publicized couples in the entertainment industry, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were a Country music power couple.

They weren’t the most widely reported on — Country music as a genre is usually in its own little world.

But since they were both big enough to have name-recognition by people who don’t consume Country music, they were both big deals on their own.

Together, they were unstoppable.

Until they stopped.

Both Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are alleged to have cheated on the other.

Gwen Stefani’s account of how she first began to bond with Blake Shelton says that it was after she shared with her costars that she and Gavin Rossdale had split — and she shared why they had split.

Blake had come up to her and revealed that he had been through the same thing.

Keep in mind that Gavin Rossdale reportedly had an affair with the couple’s nanny, which Gwen is said to have discovered after a personal message between Gavin and the nanny was synced to a tablet that she viewed.

Having only had one serious boyfriend before she married Gavin, Gwen Stefani is the sort who takes marriage very seriously. Some spouses might have worked on the relationship. A few would have just ignored it.

Not Gwen, though.

So if Blake alleged that Miranda Lambert had put him through something similar, then he accuses her of cheating.

There was fallout among their friends and among their Country music peers.

Even though Miranda Lambert and boyfriend Anderson East (Miranderson?) recently celebrated two years together — just last month! — it’s more than plausible that Miranda still has a lot of unresolved anger over how their split went down.

According to Life & Style, Miranda Lambert is speaking out — two years later — in a no-holds barred new interview.

As reported by their insider, she talks about how Blake wronged her during their breakup and how that impacts her to this day.

“Blake blindsided her with the divorce and drove her out of their home.”

Remember — her belongings were literally placed outside.

That might be a very dramatic or even funny or satisfying scene in a romantic comedy, but that’s not appropriate in real life.

“It hurt her badly and profoundly changed her outlook on life.”

That’s so sad, but unfortunately not surprising.

Love can change your life, but a bad breakup can totally transform how you see the world.

Oh, and remember how we mentioned that there was fallout from that split?

“She was painted as the villain. And a lot of their friends in the industry took his side.”

We look forward to hearing her interview in which she says that.

We wonder if (and hope that) it will make the fake friends who started treating Miranda Lambert differently squirm in their seats a little differently, you know?

These days, at least, they’re moving on.

If the latest reports are to be believed, Miranda Lambert and Anderson East may elope rather than plan an elaborate wedding.

That could happen as early as this winter, during the holiday season.

There are theories that they might be racing towards marriage so that they can beat Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani to the punch.

And with hint after hint that Blake and Gwen want to tie the knot, including Blake Shelton’s new song that’s all about weddings, Miranda and Anderson will need to race against the clock if they want to reach that milestone first.


Kim Kardashian: Kanye West Ruined My Career!

Toward the end of 2016, rumors of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West getting divorced seemed to be everywhere.

The reports may have been exaggerated, but the couple clearly hit a major rough patch.

Kim was traumatized from being robbed in Paris; Kanye checked into a mental health facility following an emotional breakdown.

All-in-all, things were just not great in Kimye Land.

But in time, the dust settled, and against all odds, Kim and Kanye were able to work things out and figure out a way to come back together as man and wife.

As couples that veered dangerously close to Splitsville often do, they enjoyed a brief second honeymoon period, but that appears to be over now.

These days, Kim is being surpassed by her sisters in terms of popularity and she’s ready to ride into Calabasas on a dragon and reclaim her place as the Khaleesi of social media.

But it seems that knocking Kylie and company off her throne hasn’t been as easy as she expected.

And some insiders Kim is blaming Kanye for that.

“She knows that everyone is just over her now and she is right. But she just doesn’t know what to do about it,” a source close to the couple tells Radar Online.

The insider says Kim thought her marriage to Kanye would legitimize her career and take her to Beyonce-like levels of fame. 

Now, she feels he’s nothing more than a volatile liability, whose outbursts and erratic behavior are doing irreparable damage to the image she worked so hard to create.

Though there was a time when she thought they’d overcome the events of last year, Kim reportedly now looks at late 2016 as the couple’s breaking point.

“Kim thinks that things have never been the same since then and she is blaming Kanye for all of it,” says the source.

“That is why she has been focusing so much of her time and energy into her makeup empire. It’s all she really has left,” the insider claims.

We assume she meant to say, “That’s all she has left aside from her kids, her close-knit family, her massive fortune, and her legion of adoring fans.”

But maybe she’s focusing on makeup now because that’s Kylie’s thing, and Kim is a totes jelly 36-year-old mom.


13 Men Whose Lives Were Ruined By the Kardashians

Man alive. The Kardashians sure do a number on dudes.

Don't believe us? Just ask this group of nine, whose lives were never the same after the Kardashian and Jenner women finished with them.

Yes, they all landed on this list for different reasons, and no, we're not blaming Khloe & Kompany for people OD'ing in Vegas brothels.

Still, one cannot escape the Kardashian konnection.

Scroll through this list of men whose existences have been forever alerted since they came into contact with this family, and be amazed.

Kanye can probably handle it. The rest of them?

1. Lamar Odom

Was Lamar Odom’s downward spiral triggered in part by his uneasiness with fame? And how his life continued to play out in the tabloids and on the E! show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, even after he and Khloe split up? We may never know for sure, but as he battles for his life and his prognosis looks ever more grim, the Kardashians’ role in this sad saga is sure to be hotly debated and heavily scrutinized.

2. Reggie Bush

The running back had a bright future ahead of him in the NFL. Then he dated Kim. After the two broke up, his career went downhill amidst a flurry of injuries and disappointments.

3. Jordan Clarkson

Clarkson was the starting point guard for the Lakers when he started dating Kendall. But now he’s a fringe rotation player and Los Angeles just drafted Lonzo Ball as their playmaker of the future.

4. Scott Disick

Now in rehab for at least the sixth time, Scott Disick has been a party animal for years and can’t avoid his share of the blame for his own choices in life. Who cheats on the mother of their children and chooses alcohol over one’s kids? Still, his issues with the spotlight undoubtedly led to many of the demons he’s struggled with, and eventually caused him to snap.

5. Kris Humphries

Remember Kim Kardashian’s second husband Kris Humphries? The one she was married to for 72 whole days? Yeah, his NBA career flamed out almost as quickly as their marriage. Having been involved in the conversation for most improved player in pro basketball, he soon became involved in one of the most ridiculous celebrity breakups of all time … then faded into obscurity where he belongs.

6. Brody Jenner

Brody Jenner’s life is pretty damn amazing, and he’ll tell you as much, but at the same time, he’s been anti-Kardashian long before it was cool. Brody maintains a close relationship with father Caitlyn, as well as his biological half sisters Kendall and Kylie. But he’s publicly feuded with Kim, openly dislikes former stepmom Kris, and for the love of Pete, he’s had to LIVE with all of these people!
