Jinger Duggar’s Daughter Survives First Ridiculous “Scandal”

Last week, Jinger Duggar was accused of cultural appropriation for wrapping her daughter’s head in fabric in order to keep it warm while the family attended a Chicago Cubs game.

The situation was annoying for a number of reasons.

For starters, these are the Duggars we’re talking about.

If you want to complain about an ignorant habit or a questionable child-rearing practice, they give you so much good material to work with.

There’s really no need to go nit-picking.

On top of that, since when is there a specific culture that owns the exclusive rights to wrapping babies up in fabric to keep them warm?

By that logic, Jinger and her ilk can and should accuse Scientologists of cultural approporiation.

After all, far-right evangelicals were weirding people out with their extremist beliefs decades before L. Ron Hubbard was even born.

Anyway, when you slam the Duggars for perfectly normal behavior, you reinforce their belief that they’re simply being persecuted for their religious convictions.

Worse, you distract from the actual shady practices the family engages in on a regular basis.

And as you can see from the photo below, Jinger is not the slightest bit concerned about the uproar over her baby girl’s headgear.

That’s a pic Jinger posted on Monday.

The proud new mom captioned the image, “So smiley!”

Her head is wrapped in a fashion that’s identical to the Wrigley Field pic, and it looks as though neither Jinger or Felicity are losing any sleep over the uproar.

In fact, Jinger probably received a monetary bonus from Jim Bob this month.

Every time something like this happens, it strengthens the Duggars’ argument that the public will find fault with everything they do.

So now, when there’s another legitimate Duggar scandal — and we’re about due for a big one — Jim Bob can point to this situation and be all:

“[Self-righteous sigh] This is just like that time everyone freaked out on Jinger’s baby for wearing a scarf.”

The worst part is, this “scandal” is probably the result of 8-10 very vocal nitwits who get a weird high from being mad online.

This has been yet another installment of “Society: It Just Wasn’t Ready For the Internet.”

Khloe Kardashian Goes Into Labor After Tristan’s Cheating Scandal Breaks

On the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kylie Jenner gave birth. It took more than seven months for that to air.

Viewers knew that it was only a matter of time before the show reached Khloe and her much more controversial childbirth.

In this preview video, you can see Kim, Khloe, and the rest of her family react as Khloe goes into labor … and Tristan's cheating scandal is exposed.

Kim kardashian has a tense discussion

In the Keeping Up With The Kardashians preview teaser video that we have for you, the show teases what remains to be seen on this season.

When it really becomes interesting is when, very clearly, the story of Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal breaks.

"They have another video of him," Kim can be heard saying into her phone.

She is clearly referring to Tristan Thompson and the evidence of him being with other women during Khloe's pregnancy.

"Unfollowed, I hate him," Kim announces in another part of the clip. "Sorry, not sorry."

Khloe kardashian goes into labor

Kim's reaction was one thing, but what everyone wants to see is how Khloe responded to the news that her love and baby daddy is a no-good dirty cheater.

As we all know, it was a matter of hours after that scandal broke that Khloe went into labor with baby True.

"The things I can control, I have to be able to control," Khloe can be heard saying.

That is a fairly grounded response to such explosive news — though of course we can imagine that some responses may have been edited out.

Khloe does, after all, have veto power over footage from the show.

Khloe kardashian undergoes an ultrasound

She gets an ultrasound while very pregnant, and also is shown going into labor while her family races to get to where she is in Cleveland.

"I hope everyone gets here in time," Khloe says.

You can also see a van full of her family members racing towards her.

As widely reported as Tristan's scandal was and True's birth was, we never really got a behind-the-scenes look or Khloe's reaction immediately afterwards.

We hope that, despite Khloe's editorial powers, we get to see her raw reaction. Fans are curious. It's human nature.

We'll definitely get to see at least some of the responses, from anger to disbelief, of Khloe's extended family. We wonder what Tristan will think.

Arguably the second-most-interesting storyline in this teaser is Kim using her platform for civil rights advocacy.

The story of a woman using her fame and beauty to influence a terrible old orange man to pardon a grandmother is definitely compelling.

Speaking of Trump, Kim also addresses Kanye West's worrisome bad behavior and outlandish statements.

In this case, it looks like fans can expect to see more or less the same sentiments that she has expressed publicly.

She believes that Kanye's apparently uncontrolled, no-filter declarations about Trump and "dragon energy" aren't signs of mental illness.

Kim kardashian is looking great

Kim may be right. If she is, Kanye isn't mentally troubled — he may just be a bad person.

And it is of course unfair to malign the mentally ill, many of whom are good people, by confusing bad behavior with mental health.

Viewers will also get to see things like Kendall, who is famously anxious, try skydiving for the first time. Also, Kris falls down playing baseball.

Honestly? That could all be entertaining, but it's just filler.

Khloe's heartbreak, Kim's activism, and Kanye's nonsense look like the real meat of the rest of the season.

Jenna Cooper: Inside Her Bachelor in Paradise Cheating Scandal

It's the Bachelor in Paradise scandal no one saw coming.

On the Season 5 finale of this ABC reality series, Jordan Kimball got down on one knee and proposed to Jenna Cooper… and she said yes!

Hooray, right?!?

Not so fast.

Around the same exact time this proposal aired, a handful of text messages went viral that Bachelor guru Reality Steve alleges were sent back and forth between Jenna and her actual boyfriend/lover this summer.

It certainly appears as if Cooper was sleeping with someone else while she was being wooed by Jordan on the aforementioned series.

What is actually going on here? And s there any chance Jordan and Jenna still walk down the aisle next year?

Scroll down to get caught up…

1. What a Perfect Looking Couple

Jenna cooper
Ah, yes, but looks can deceive. This is the most recent photo Jenna shared of herself and Jordan on Instagram prior to the cheating bombshell getting dropped online.

2. The Proposal

The ask
Jordan asked for Jenna’s hand to wrap up Season 5 and the two then asked Chris Harrison to officiate their wedding in June of 2019.

3. The Wedding Would Have Been Televised, Too

Paradise peeps
They announced on the finale that the date would be June 9, 2019 and Cooper said the following about the planned union to People Magazine: “I want our wedding to be extra and fun, just like our personalities. There will be some performances, some outfit changes.”

4. But Now?

Jordan and jenna
YIKES! It’s hard to believe the reality stars make it down the aisle, not when an unnamed person contacted Reality Steve and claimed to have been in a relationship nearly this whole time with Jenna.

5. Why Did This Man Come Forward?

“Jenna is a manipulator. She manipulated me. She manipulates the other guys she ‘networks’ with and is apparently manipulating this Jordan guy,” he told Reality Steve, explaining that he met Jenna prior to Bachelor in Paradise filming and was still with her two days before the finale aired.

6. More Jenna Bashing:

Added this individual of Cooper: “She uses men for money and business help and loves the attention along the way. And she just loves to rub in your face that she’s pretty and everyone wants her and how she can easily move onto the next. I’m tired of the bullshit and am calling her out.”

Bachelor in Paradise Finale Marred by Stunning Cheating Scandal

On the Bachelor in Paradise season finale Tuesday night, Jordan Kimball got down on one knee and proposed to Jenna Cooper.

It was a beautiful moment, as you can see here:

the ask

But the proposal, the acceptance, the finale and possibly the entire relationship has now been marred by an explosive allegation:

Has Jenna been cheating on Jordan?

Indeed, the same day ABC aired footage of Jordan and Jenna agreeing to marry and asking Chris Harrison to officiate their June 2019 wedding, Reality Steve shared text messages between Jenna and the man with whom she has allegedly been sleeping.

Reality Steve, as you may know, is the Internet’s leading purveyor of Bachelor spoilers and Bachelorette spoilers.

The man has his connection. He knows his stuff.

According to Steve, Jenna has been cheating on Jordan all summer with an unnamed man that she met prior to Bachelor in Paradise filming.

A professional relationship between the two, during which they teamed up for a failed business venture, eventually turned intimate.

This is an exchange Steve alleges took place just this past weekend:

jenna text

In another exchange published by Steve, Jenna apologizes for her actions on an episode and tells this lover that she’s only on the show for her “business.”

There’s also this semi-graphic back and forth:

jenna cheats

Yikes, right?

Poor Jordan, right?

This is what he told People Magazine about the depressing development:

“I’m weak in the knees and I feel like I have rocks in my stomach.”

Did Jenna actually cheat, though?

No, she tells this same publication in a statement:

“I am aware of the allegations being made against me and they are simply untrue. I am choosing to focus on my relationship right now. Thank you for respecting my privacy at this time.”

We aren’t exactly doing that.

We’re a celebrity gossip website and it’s our job to discuss allegations of this nature.

All we can do is share the information we’ve received or we’ve seen, however. We cannot verify the above text messages with 100% certainty.

Kimball says he has spoken to Cooper since this story broke — and that he believes the cheating charge to be true.

“I know my Jenna, and I read those texts and in my heart, I know it’s her,” he says, adding to People:

“She was saying she didn’t do it, but hinting towards the fact that there’s a possibility that it happened. In all reality, I don’t expect her to own it.”

Jordan also says the two were planning an engagement party next month in North Carolina. His parents were planning to attend and everything.

What now?

He can’t say for sure.

But Jordan denies all assertions that the couple faked anything for the camera (“This was not a TV romance. This was real. And whether you like me or not, I deserve love.”) and admits his universe has been rocked by this scandal:

I don’t know how to handle this. All I know is I obviously only knew a limited amount of information about Jenna. This is embarrassing and it hurts my pride. And our friendship is just tarnished.

I don’t even know what piece to pick up or how to put it back.

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

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

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

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

But just because Garrett knows one thing:

He still has to win over Bachelorette Nation.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

garrett reaction

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

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

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

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

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