Sometimes, relationships can leave a family divided. Though the fact that Selena Gomez’s mom was hospitalized over her seeing Bieber again makes this family squabble an extreme case.
For a while now, Selena’s feud with her mother over her rekindled romance with Justin Bieber has kept the two at odds.
But fans think that Selena’s new Instagram post means that the two have made nice. Have they? If so … where does that leave Bieber?
So, a quick refresher.
Remember how Selena Gomez wasted some of the best years of her life … sorry, remember how Selena dated Justin Bieber off and on for years despite his alleged substance abuse issues and reported emotional issues and well-documented bad behavior?
A few years ago, they finally broke it off “for good” … until a few months ago.
See, Justin had seen the story about Selena’s life-saving kidney transplant. Lupus has been taking a brutal toll on her body, folks.
And apparent, it took seeing how bad his ex’s condition really was for the Biebs to realize how much le really cared about Selena.
He called her mom to beg for her number, just to talk. Well, one thing led to another.
Since their reunion, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have been in couples therapy. They have a lot of issues to work past if they’re going to stay a couple.
And it was that — learning that they’re in therapy together — that sent Selena’s mom, Mandy Teefey, over the edge. To the point where she was (voluntarily) hospitalized for a short time.
We don’t think that their reunion seemed real to her until she learned about the counseling. And then she had to have wondered if she’d doomed her own daughter to repeat past mistakes.
Selena and her mom have had other conflicts, including a pretty intense one several years ago, when Selena decided that she was an adult and didn’t need her mother to be her manager anymore.
But it looks like Bieber’s presence in Selena’s life has pushed her family to the breaking point. Until now. …
Selena posted this photo with the caption:
“The home I grew up in, from birth to 13…”
Apparently she doesn’t own the house, because she added:
“(no one was home when I knocked this time lol) I visit this place every chance I get.”
It says good things about your childhood when you go back, as a millionaire adult, to do anything other than purchase it and personally bulldoze it.
“In many ways it very well could have been better than my life today, but I’m grateful for a voice that can enable change today.”
Childhood, for those who enjoyed it, can be a simpler time with fewer stresses.
“Even when I don’t know how to do it well or actually want it. I love you Grand Prairie. Thank you.”
Technically, Selena doesn’t mention her mother in that.
But she’s still talking about her childhood home, while sitting on the little old porch.
She grew up with her mom, so what else could she be contemplating, one wonders, than the importance of her relationship with her mother?
Up until now, there have been indications that Selena Gomez wants to mend things with mom but not at the cost of Bieber.
Have her priorities changed?
Maybe … maybe not.
Just because two loving family members reconcile or are thinking about reconciling doesn’t mean that either of them have changed their minds.
It just means that they’ve decided — maybe — that their relationship and bond is more important than their topic of disagreement.
Really, if Mandy Teefey wants to see them break up, she should just wait for Justin to screw things up on his own.
Hopefully, if he does, and Selena sees that he’s not magically a different person just because he’s going to fancy celebrity church now, she’ll back out before she’s once again in too deep.
But Mandy Teefey must worry about the potential toll that dating Bieber could take on Selena’s mental and emotional well being. And her physical health, quite frankly. She still has Lupus, folks.
From that first week of Rob Kardashian’s revenge porn meltdown against Blac Chyna, we’ve been predicting that he’s going to pay dearly for it.
And by “pay,” we mean pay. With cash. To Blac Chyna.
Well, Rob and Chyna have settled their intense custody dispute, and based upon the details … it looks like we were exactly right. This is gonna cost Rob a lot.
Right after the Fourth of July, Rob Kardashian went on a positively Presidential social media rant in the wee hours of that Wednesday morning.
It seemed that he simply could not resist his impulses, and he’s going to be paying for that for a long, long time.
We imagine that he has some regrets.
During that rant, Rob complained that Blac Chyna was cheating on him — despite the fact that they were no longer together.
The biggest deal, though, was that Rob Kardashian posted private, nude images of Blac Chyna — of her butt, her breasts, and one that was pretty much just of her vulva.
Classy guy, that Rob.
That’s not just against Instagram’s policies — for which Rob’s account was shut down (and still doesn’t seem to be back up, which is fair); it’s a little thing called revenge porn and it could get Rob in a lot of trouble.
It definitely didn’t help that Rob, after Instagram shut him out, dumped those images on Twitter to make sure that even more people saw them.
Blac Chyna responded by breaking her silence and accusing Rob Kardashian of domestic violence during their relationship.
That is an extremely serious accusation.
What has followed has been a struggle to reach a custody settlement over their daughter, Dream Kardashian.
Dream, who is 10 months old, should always come first.
TMZ reports that the Rob-Chyna war that has raged in the media and in court has reached a settlement at last.
They’ve agreed to join custody.
TMZ specifically reports that they’re told that Rob “gets a skosh more than 50% custody,” and your guess as to what that means is probably as good as ours.
Apparently, Rob was initially refusing to pay more than $ 10,000 per month in child support. Blac Chyna wanted more … allegedly as much as $ 50,000.
(Which, for a non-rich person, sounds like plenty … though admittedly, most of us don’t need nannies during our careers or security to keep fans at bay)
In the end, though, Rob reportedly agreed to double his offer.
Blac Chyna gets $ 20,000 a month, every month, to support Dream. Also Rob will pay her legal fees from this courtroom struggle, which obviously do not come cheap.
As part of the agreement, Blac Chyna is dropping any domestic violence charges againt Rob.
A chunk of that money that Rob’s paying in support will apparently go directly to nannies.
According to our research, the normal annual salary for a nanny is $ 25,000 per year.
That probably runs higher in L.A. (because everything does; that’s how cost-of-living works), and even higher for celebrities.
But … unless 10-month-old Dream needs a team of, like, 8 nannies, which we cannot imagine that she does (4, each with reasonably short shifts, or even 6 with normal shifts and working two at a time, would be way more than enough. 1 or 2 is more realistic) … we imagine that some of this money is just Rob paying the price for his actions.
Sometimes, justice is dealt out in settlements instead of court rulings.
We don’t know if that’s the case here, but … everybody gains something from this.
None of this news is going to change Blac Chyna’s image as a gold digger.
But if your digging successfully leads to gold and you get that gold … does it really matter what other people think?
And Blac Chyna got Dream, who is almost impossibly adorable, for her efforts — whether they were gold-digging or whether she genuinely felt affection for Rob in the first place.
After this settlement, though, we have to wonder how many Kardashians and Jenners will be telling Rob that they told him so.
Those who don’t will, we imagine, just be biting their tongues.
Before she joined the cast of Vanderpump Rules, Scheana Marie was gained a modicum of infamy as one of the women who slept with Eddie Cibrian while he was still married to Brandi Glanville.
If you're familiar with this crowd, you know the story:
Cibrian went on to marry LeAnn Rimes, and Scheana swears she didn't know he was married.
Understandably, Brandi is no huge fan of Scehana's, but it seems like years later, she might finally be coming around to the idea that it's Eddie who's to blame.
If you watch Vanderpump Rules online, you know that this season hasn't been particularly kind to Scheana.
Not only is she dealing with her divorce from Mike Shay, the other ladies in her clique are being less than kind.
Ms. Marie has enjoyed plenty of sympathy on social media, and it seems like even Brandi is team Schena these days
On last night's Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Scheana how she feels about Brandi offering some kind words in a recent interview.
Scheana says the turn-around made her jaw drop, and she went on Twitter to thank her former rival…
…only to find that Brandi still has her blocked.
Looks like this hatchet isn't completely buried just yet.
Watch the clip below to see Scheana's reaction to Brandi's stunning endorsement.
